Baby rock hyraxes debut at Chester Zoo and you'll never guess which animal they are genetically similar to

Rock hyraxes live in colonies of two to 26 individuals and make 20 different noises to communicate with each other. They produce an episode of 'harsh yips' which build up to 'grunts' to defend their territory.  The furry creatures are also known as 'rock rabbits' or 'dassies' and can found in large colonies across Africa and the Arabian Peninsula.
