Benin tree hyrax is found in the region between the Niger and Volta Rivers in West Africa, hence the name.
It can be distinguished from neighbouring Dendrohyrax dorsalis by its night-time barking vocalizations, its shorter and broader skull, and its lighter pelage.
This is a species that is not currently agreed. However, if/when it is, it has been assessed by the IUCN as being least concern
