Rock Hyrax (Procavia capensis)
The feet of Hyraxes, or Rock Dassies, are adept for rocky terrain, allowing this small mammal to ascend nearly vertical rock faces. Hyraxes are closely related to Elephant, and in the past, have been categorized in the same family group. Extremely agile, they stay close to their rocky-habitat at all times, being favorite prey to eagles. They have a high pitch vocal which can be heard over great distances. They are not water dependant.
Hyraxes are best hunted with Bludgeon arrowpoints. A shot to the head delivers an immediate deathblow. Broadside shots on the vitals has been successful, but ensure correct heartshot placement to deliver enough hydrostatic shock to seize heart functioning. The heart is situated quite low in the chest and to the front. Broadhead shots are not advised due to pass through. This results in the animal retreating to its burrow before death occurs, making retrieval of the carcass impossible.
