Rock hyraxes (Procavia
capensis) and certain fruit-eating bats are also purported to feed on the sarcotesta and disperse the undamaged seeds in the process (Giddy, 1984; Grobbelaar, 2004).
Additionally, the Rock Hyrax (Procavia
capensis), released during the 1990s, has maintained a small population up until today around an artificial water source on Jebel Hafit, Al Ain--Abu Dhabi Emirate (Drew C.
The extant analogues for mixed feeders are Tragelaphus imberbis (Blyth 1869) and Procavia
capensis Pallas (1766) (Table 1 Appendix 2).

longipes are confined around Mt Elgon where these are known to feed on the rock hyrax, Procavia
johnstoni Thomas, the tree hyrax, Dendrohyrax arboreus Smith, and the giant rat Cricetomys gambianus Waterhouse, which are the known reservoirs for L.
The bounded count method has been used with rock hyraxes, Procavia
capensis, in Africa (Fairall and Crawford, 1981), which like mountain vizcachas are colonial, observable during the day, and occupy discrete patches of rocky habitat.
The hyrax order (Hyracoidea) contains a single family, the rock hyrax family (Procaviidae), represented by the large-toothed rock hyrax (Procavia
capensis), which lives in the rocky areas of the southern Sahara, as well as in Palestine and Arabia.
