Kirk's Dik-Dik in Samburu National Reserve

Kirk's Dik-Dik in Samburu National Reserve

The Kirk's Dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii) is a small antelope found in eastern and southwestern Africa. It grows to 70 cm (28 in) in length and weighs up to 7 kg (15 lbs) when full grown. It has a reddish-brown head and a tail that is 35—55 cm (14–22 in) long. It has a soft, grizzled gray to brown coat, and eats a wide range of plants. It has hooves with rubbery bottoms, which are effective when travelling over rocky terrain. Newborns are hidden for 2–3 weeks, and suckle for 3–4 months.
