Günther's Dik-dik


Günther's Dik-dik (Madoqua guentheri) is a small antelope found in arid zones of East Africa. It is one of the smallest ungulates in Africa, weighing 3–5 kilograms when fully grown. It has a yellowish-grey to reddish-brown coat, black hooves, small heads with long necks, and large ears with white insides. Belly, chin, breast, throat, and inner thighs are cream or white. They have a short tail. Although the horn cores are only present in males, gender identification can be difficult from a distance.
