Example:
I saw a Hyrex the last time we went on a hike in Ein Gedi National Park in Israel. They are very cute, and one even smelled my hand, but I didn’t pet it. (Although I really wanted to!)
They eat green vegetation, and live in the mountains in Israel. They have big front teeth so it can bite you if you get too close!
