I am still wondering where that relationship went.

Yes, believe it or not some barmy individual is claiming that the photo of the Dartmoor beast is a look-a-like for a giant hyrax. Interestingly, giant hyraxes are thought ot have existed in the distant past and some reached the size of a pony apparently. Dartmoor Beast Identified As New Species Of European Giant Hyrax?

Good grief - as if a giant hyrax would be a) alone in the world and b) so far undiscovered. Barmy. Definitely.

Hi TMF and welcome. The various beasts around Bodmin, Dartmoor etc have been described as some wacky creatures, but a giant hyrax is beyond my imagination. It is almost like a "Goodies" sketch.

Nice to meet you all. It's a classic isn't it. One good enough for the tv show imo.

I'll see what else I can find
