Ethiopian Mountain Wildlife

We were lucky to catch this Rock Hyrax hanging out on the side of the mountain.  They live in colonies and often have one or more act as sentries and take up a look out position on a vantage point to issue alarm if predators approach.  Looks as if this guy holds that position.  Although I didn’t hear any warning calls and he didn’t seem too concerned about us.

It was amazing to see the Baboons with their babies.  They had no interest in our company and so quickly moved away down the mountain.  This group were one of two species that live in this region.
