The Kenya Rock Hyrax , Heterohyrax brucie, also known as Bruce's Dassie is a small hoofed mammal which lives in colonies among rocks and boulders, sometimes (as in the Lake Baringo region) they live in the basalt cliffs providing Verreaux's Eagle with its main prey.
Kenya Rock Hyrax are mainly vegetarian eating leaves and grass and have a remarkably high tolerance to plant toxins. They will also sometimes eat insects and small lizards. They are adapted to life in dry rocky terrain and can survive for long periods without drinking.
