Since its first competitive appearance, 105 players have represented Gold Coast Football Club in an Australian Football League (AFL) premiership match. The club was granted a licence to join the AFL as an expansion club in March 2009, and played its first match during the second round of the 2011 AFL season. In preparation for the club's entry into the league, Gold Coast was provided with a range of recruitment concessions by the AFL, including additional selections in the 2010 AFL draft, early access to recruit underaged players, and access to existing clubs' out-of-contract players in the preceding offseason. Gary Ablett Jr. (pictured) was the club's inaugural captain, a role he held until 2016. The maximum playing list size of each AFL club is 47 players, consisting of 38–40 senior-listed players and the remainder as rookie-listed players. As of the conclusion of the 2018 season, the player with the highest individual games tally for Gold Coast is Jarrod Harbrow, who has played 154 matches for the club since 2011. Tom Lynch has scored the most goals for the club, attaining 254 goals in his 131 matches. (Full list...)

Rock hyrax

The rock hyrax (Procavia capensis), also known as the dassie, is one of four living species of the order Hyracoidea, and the only living species in its genus. Like all hyraxes, it is a medium-sized terrestrial mammal between 4 kilograms (9 lb) and 5 kilograms (11 lb) in mass, with short ears and tail. The rock hyrax is found across Africa and the Middle East, at elevations up to 4,200 metres (13,800 ft). It resides in habitats with rock crevices which it uses to escape from predators. Along with the other hyrax species and the manatee, these are the animals most closely related to the elephant.
