Pocket ‘lope

[Teacher voice]

Students, the African DikDik is a ridiculously cute animal. You will not find a a more anerable member of the antelope family, though the tree-standing-and-munching Gerenuk comes close.


DikDiks are dainty little ‘Lopes, standing 30 to 40 cm tall, weighing in at only 3 or 5 kg. The perfect pocket antelope size. Purse-size mohawk comb included.
