The Manatee
The american cousin of the Dugong


If life seems jolly rotten
there's something you've forgotten
and that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing

The Rock Hyrax
The rock hyrax is said to be the elephant's nearest living relative. This is true to a certain extent, but misleading, since the relationship stems from a remote ancestor common to hyraxes, sea cows (dugongs and manatees) and elephants. These three are unlike other mammals, but they share various, if disproportionate physiological similarities in teeth, leg and foot bones, testes and other more obscure details.
My Grandmother had a tame hyrax that one of my aunts found as a baby, its mother having been stoned to death by local children. She hand reared it and named it Twiggy. Twiggy had the run of the house and gardens, with the cats and dogs and eventually took herself off to join one of the wild groups living on our farm. She would return for a few days every so often, and always brought her offspring to visit. Hyrax very domesticated, their bathroom habits are particularly clean, using the same place everytime. Twiggy used to use a proper lavatory and then nudge my grandmothers foot to tell her that it needed flushing!
