If I said ‘dik-dik’ to you, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? Well I can tell you that you’re wrong, unless you were thinking of an antelope.

A dik-dik is a tiny antelope that lives in the bush of East Africa, Namibia and Angola. They are named dik-diks because of the sound it makes when frightened. There are four different species of dik-diks.

Dik-diks weigh between three and six kilograms. They have an extended snout and a soft coat that is brownish or grey on top and white underneath. The hair on the crown of male dik-diks forms an upright tuft that partially hides the horns. Dik-diks can live with temperatures of up to 40°C.

I want a pet dik-dik now, they look amazing!
