The Southern tree hyrax is mainly found in the south central eastern side of Africa.

The Dendrohyrax or Southern tree hyrax has a guinea pig-like appearance. It has long, soft, grey-brown fur that covers the body, while the underside is paler. Hairs are lighter near their tips and the ears have a fringe of white hair. They weigh about 5.0 lb. on average, and have an average length of 20 in.

Dendrohyrax or Southern tree hyrax is found in Angola, Zambia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, Tanzania, Malawi, Mozambique, and South Africa.

Its natural habitats are temperate forests, subtropical or tropical dry forests, subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests, subtropical or tropical moist montane forests, moist savanna, and rocky areas. It may be found at elevations up to 14,800 ft.

Dendrohyrax or Southern tree hyrax lives in forested areas that contain a mix of older and younger trees. The variety of forested environments it inhabits ranges from alpine, montane, highland, lowland, and riverine forests.

Four sub-species are recognized: D. arboreus stuhlmanni, D. arboreus crawshayi, D. arboreus ruwenzorii, and D. arboreus aldofi-friederici. Ranges overlap, although some habitat differentiation has been reported where the sub-species co-occur.

Dendrohyrax or Southern tree hyrax breeding may occur throughout the year for Dendrohyrax or Southern tree hyrax, as evidenced by juveniles of several sizes simultaneously present in one population in Rwanda.

A captive Dendrohyrax or Southern tree hyrax male-female pair produced offspring in June from a pregnancy that began before captivity and in December each year thereafter.

One to two young (more often two) were born each time, and suckling began within a few hours, although the time to weaning steadily decreased from 7 months for the first litter to 3 months for the last birth.
