mummy daddy and two baby rock hyraxes sitting on the, um, rock! I also see them in the trees, perhaps those are called tree hyraxes, I don't know. They are pretty common around Serengeti but I like to take their photos because it looks like they are smiling for the camera.

Hi Steve,

What a cute Family, well captured, they really look like they are posing for you. I like the natural colours and the detail and framing is good.
This is the first time I have seen these little animals.

Very cute family portrait, Sitthivet.
Great pose and good eye contact.
What did you do to make them pose for you like that? : )
You can post the picture in a bigger size to show the details better.
TFS. : )
