    Yes

    The closest living relatives to hyraxes are the modern-day elephants

    20" long and 8 lbs

    I used to watch these in the alps - they lived in colony in a huge pile of rocks & were very timid / wary of anyone

    when I saw them there were feet away and one came up close and seemed to be interested in my sandwiches

    hyraxes to elephant or vica versa - selective breeding I reckon
