Male Kirk's dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii damarensis) nose twitching. Dik-diks usually nose-twitch when they are wary. This tiny antelope is also known as the Damara dik-dik (a subspecies of Kirk's dik-dik found in Southern Angola and Namibia). It grows to around 65 centimetres in length and weighs around 5 kilograms as an adult. It is monogamous, lives in pairs, and is active both during the day and at night, feeding on shoots, 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 Namibia. Filmed in the Etosha National Park, Namibia.
