An adorable mammal has found a more unconventional way of getting around - by hitching a ride on a red-footed tortoise.<br />
<br />
The hyrax, a small tailless mammal, is one of three siblings who often climb up onto the tortoises' back for a ride. <br />
<br />
The trio share an enclosure with the tortoise and have recently been spotted using the reptile as a taxi.<br />
<br />
The young hyraxes were born at Drusillas Park, in Alfriston, East Sussex, in June to Bubble and Squeak, who arrived at the attraction in May this year.<br />
