Kirk's dik-dik. Close-up of the head of a male Kirk's dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii). This tiny antelope, also known as the Damara dik-dik, 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. Kirk's dik-dik lives in savanna and scrub in Kenya, Tanzania, Angola and in south-western Africa. Photographed in Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya.
