The Dassie is a small mammal found on Table Mountain in South Africa. It's closest relation in the Animal Kingdom is the elephant (you wouldn't believe it to see it), and it has tusk like teeth and sticky pads on its feet to aid climbing on the outcrops.

It's preyed upon by large birds, but seems to be more than happy hanging out on the outcrops by 3000ft drops, sunbathing and posing for tourists!

Unfortunately I didn't have anything longer than 70mm on FX with me at the time:

I like these, especially the second one.

The second one is great but the first one looks like it's in distress.

I see you don't suffer with camera shake, especially climbing up all that way, did you see me waving to you trying to get your attention I was 4,000ft below you.
