The old reliable .22 is the dassie rifle, not only because the ammunition is so cheap but because the blast of anything more powerful would scare the dassies away all day. The reason that the dassie fascinates scientists is that its sleek little frame contains a truly mixed bag of Inherited and evolved features difficult to find elsewhere. For one thing the dassie has like the elephant and the dugong, a double apexed heart, mammary glands on the chest and reproductive organs In the lower abdomen. For teeth the dassie has a pair of incisors curving deeply into the skull Just like those of its relative, the rhino. animals including the rhino, the elephant, the tapir and the dugong. For some reason known only unto nature, the dassie took to the hills Instead of the plains like its relatives. There it stayed to this day. Almost every "kop" hill or mountain slope in South Africa has its population of dassles, sunning themselves while at the same time keeping an eye open for any hunters. Farmers dislike the dassie because now that its natural enemies like leopards, eagles and pythons have largely vanished it makes forays into the cultivated fields and eases its voracious appetite on the crops. Youngsters and quite a lot of oldsters too enjoy hunting the dassie because it presents a test of stalking and shooting skill out of all proportion to its size or value.

Witness the case of one Procavia Capensls, tipping the scales at about eight pounds and a distant cousin believe it or not of the elephant and the rhino. Procavia Capensis is a sly little fellow measuring perhaps 18 Inches in length and looking not unlike an overgrown guinea pig covered with rich brown fur. Known variously as the Hy-rax, rock-rabbit or coney, South Africans call him the "dassie" rhymes with "fussy" and either hate or love him, depending on whether they are farmers, makers of "kaross-es" (skin blankets) or teen-aged varmint hunters cutting their teeth on granddad's old .22 rifle. Anyhow, the object of this emotion has now been raised from the classification of ungulates such as horses, cows, rhino and elephant, to an order of its own, known as hyra-coidea. For any other animal this would be something of an honor. In this case it is no more than what is justly due, since the dassie is an unusual animal by any standards. Somewhere along the line it shared a common ancestor with a weird variety of other Paul T. Douglas I'd. '. Ad,. Ifrmo.
