The southern tree hyrax Animal or tree dassie has a yellowish patch on the back near the rump, but is otherwise grey-brown with buff underparts. The head, legs, and tail seem almost too small for the stocky body. True to its name, the southern tree hyrax lives among trees, shrubs, and creepers, and nests in a tree-hole. It feeds on the ground only occasionally. Like all hyraxes, this species has poor control of body temperature, so groups often sunbathe down. up, or rest in shade to coo a Litters of 1-2 are born after a gestation period of 7-8 months.
