Aren't they related to elephants? Or am I thinking of Pikas? Or lemmings? Or... something?

These are horrible, horrible, angry creatures. They drink their own piss to survive in the rocky cliffsides at the Cape of Good Hope. And they are mean, mean, mean fucking things. They hiss. They also bite, and apparently bite more tourists than all other mammals combined in SA.
Yes, they're related to elephants, but fuck, they are not friendly. Their memories must be very good, and they remember drinking piss and living on barren cliffsides.
addendum: i did not see anyone eating hyrax cubs in this video. F- WOULD NOT BUY FROM AGAIN
I'd like to note here for the record that I own some hyrax poop. Or, at least an 8% dilution of hyrax poop in pure ethanol.
It's used in perfumery as a fixative. Fixatives make other scents last longer on the skin. Many fixatives of either animal or plant derivation contain a fecal note. It's, uh, well, the fecal note in very tiny amounts is a key part of what makes a scent sexually attractive. As odd as that sounds, it turns out that we're that far removed from peeing in the corner to mark territory, as far as parts of our brain are concerned.
Obtaining most animal fixatives, like musk, civet, castoreum, etc. involve the death of the animal or are cruel.
But, hell, hyraxes love crapping.
Thus, hyrax poop is a highly desired product.
It looks vaguely like a kitty, so I'll give it an almost-five.
I get it, they're like the little yippy dogs of the Paenungulates. Vocal and bad-tempered and more likely to bite than their larger kin.
Kitty video in hideous disguise.
KILL IT WITH FIRE!
I don't care about feeding the animals, let 'em starve!
