It seems that a certain user sort of equates hyrax to a magical stop gap for basically any cryptid type of situation, as can be seen in this thread.  I came across references to this hyraxism in comments on older threads from at least a couple years past and am delighted to find modern incarnations.

I think the sort of motivation/justification for this is that the hyrax is a relatively small animal, but is more closely related to elephants than rodents.  So, in very fuzzy theory, it could have the DNA to make a very large animal as a sort of atavism, even though they are in all known scientific incarnations not big at all.

ive been enjoying his theories for years. the hyrax is making a comeback....there was a time it was the explanation for every bigfoot/dogman/werewolf thread.

so long and thanks for all the fish
