    http://www.MarylandZoo.TV | The Maryland Zoo in Baltimore is welcoming its newest arrivals – two rock hyrax babies! Rock hyraxes (Procavia capensis) look like very large guinea pigs but actually are most closely related to elephants. Their front teeth, which resemble those of a rodent, are thought to be remnants of tusks. They are native to Africa and the Middle East and they prefer rocky or shrub-covered areas bordering dry savannahs.
