Living on the Edge of Table Mountain
Dassies, or rock hyraxes, are often seen sunning themselves on the rocky outcrops of Table Mountain. You'll notice them nibbling on the branches close to the pathways in the park, which allows for great photo opportunities. One odd fact fact about these animals, is that their closest living relative is the elephant and not a rodent, as one might assume. They're actually pretty cute, but don't get too close - they've got a pair of incisors that would hurt if bitten.
