It may be Wordless Wednesday, but he can’t wait until tomorrow to tell his mommy how much he loves her!
What a cute photograph, Liz!
This is a lovely photograph – I have always enjoyed watching dassies.
Thanks Anne. There certainly is an ‘enigmatic’ aura about them 🙂
As soon as I saw the photo, the first thing that popped into my head was the Beatles song, “Do you want to know a secret?”
Very appropriate! Now that track is playing in my head. 🙂
So adorable, I am left wordless!
🙂 Thanks Carole.
Wonderful photo, and I guessed immediately they must be hyraxes before I saw your lable. When I was in Africa in 1980 (OMG!) I was told that the rock hyrax is the closest living relative to the elephant!
It’s true! Rock hyrax and dugongs share a common ancestor with elephant in the evolutionary chain, albeit way back.
What a lovely shot! Hyraxes are such a unique species.
