Bascia you have there a rock dassie as the first pic and the second one is a bat-eared fox.
The dassie is an interesting little creature, it is almost the soul prey of the black eagle also featured on a africam cam. It is also the closest relative to the elephant and that connection is made by the bonestructure in their feet and teeth.
Some info from the Game Ranger's course on http://www.wildlifecampus.com/
They have efficient kidneys which enable hyraxes to function on minimal moisture intake. In addition, they have a capacity for concentrating urea and excrete large amounts of undissolved calcium carbonate. Hyraxes always urinate in the same place and crystallised calcium carbonate forms deposits which whiten the rocks. These crystals were used as medicine by several South African tribes.
If you go onto Table Mountain you are almost certain to see them and do not try to touch them, as some ppl already exoerienced .......... they bite! Laughing out loud
They look so cuddly, but they are wild animals Laughing out loud
