The dik-dik is one of the smallest antelope in the world. It ranges between 12 and 16 inches in height at the shoulders and weights about 6 to 11 pounds. Its tail is about two inches long and it has a rough coat of fur and a long fuzzy muzzle. Their back and sides are reddish brown and their belly is white. The male dik-diks have a pair of short, straight, ringed, horns that are usually covered up by hair. The females are usually bigger than the males. They live in dry areas and eat acacias and other shrubs. You will find them either alone or in groups of 2 or 3. The Dik-dik is named for the sound it makes when it is alarmed. That sound is a loud and high pitched.
