Dassie View   Table Top Mountain, Capetown, South Africa

Rock Hyrax or Dassies are quite large and friendly looking rodents that sit and bask on top of Table Top Mountain undoubtedly attracted to the crumbs, crisps and foodstuffs belonging to the visitors that make their way up the cable car from the base station far below.  This slab of rock in the sun had a spectacular view and groups of Dassie would often congregate and quickly scatter apparently admiring the amazing view of a misty Capetown and its harbour below.
