Mystery animal of South Africa, possibly a Hyrax.
Physical description: Presumably small or medium-sized. Completely unknown morphology, since it is known only from its trail.
Tracks: A trail of bloody spots, 1-2 inches across, that passes under low branches and through narrow crevices. Habitat: Rocky outcrops. Distribution: Chizarira National Park, Zimbabwe.
Significant sighting: Zoologist Carina Norris examined one of these bloody trails in the summer of 1997.
Possible explanation: A hyrax of some kind, based on its preference for a rocky habitat, though hyraxes are herbivorous.
