Hyraxes in Early Morn

I looked up hyraxes in my BEHAVIOR GUIDE TO AFRICAN MAMMALS because what else am I going to do with my life? I learned a few things, such as "Hyraxes move in a creeping walk and are especially sluggish in early morn... They need an hour or 2 to warm up before becoming active..." Sounds familiar! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Oh my. Also, "Hyraxes defend themselves by presenting their rumps... Fighting hyraxes back into each other..." I like the vocabulary of my BEHAVIOR GUIDE TO AFRICAN MAMMALS, words like "rump" and "morn." Finally, I like the last line in that article about hyraxes I told you about earlier. A scientist says, "They're pretty well liked, even when they're hated." Hyrax!
