NEXT UP: 4th seeded Tree Hyrax (Dendrohyrax dorsalis) vs. 13th seeded Bank Vole (Myodes glareolus) #2020MMM
Though 'Hyrax' comes from the Greek 'Hurax', meaning "shrewmouse", our combatant the Western Tree Hyrax is much larger than either of these namesake rodents, reaching lengths up to 2 feet and weighing up to 4.5 kg (~20 stoats). #StoatsAsMeasurement #2020MMM
The fur of the Tree Hyrax is primarily gray-brown, but it has a distinct "dorsal spot" -- a scent gland covered by a lighter patch of hair -- on its back. As its name suggests, it is an adept climber, aided by flat nails and the rubbery texture of its feet. #2020MMM
