I learned something interesting today. Apparently, the Rock Hyrax's closest living relative is not something that you might expect. You know, somehting small and fuzzy, like a groundhog perhaps. Nope, instead it's something big and relatively hairless, like an elephant. I dunno, I don't see the similarity, but it's hard to argue with genetics. In related news, I think I read this correctly, but somewhere recently, I read that humans and chimps actually have more genes in common than chimps and other primates. This is likely an indication that at some point when we split away from the rest of the great apes, we then split again into what would become modern day chimps and what would eventually become humans. I think this is fascinating personally, strange since I hated biology... Linko!
