Caption: Kirk's dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii). This tiny antelope, also known as the Damara dik-dik (M. damarensis), grows to around 65 centimetres in length and weighs around 5 kilograms as an adult. It lives in pairs and is active both during the day and at night, feeding on tubers and roots, which it digs out of the ground. When startled, it runs in a zigzag pattern, making frequent leaps and bounds. Kirk's dik-dik lives in savanna and scrub in Kenya, Tanzania, Angola and in south- western Africa. Photographed in the Samburu Game Reserve in Kenya, East Africa.
