‘Peek-a-boo’ A male dik-dik hides and peers through a bush in the Ruaha woodlands. Among the smallest African antelopes, the adorable dik-dik stands only ~30-40cm/12-16in tall with an average weight of 4.5kg/11lbs. Given its small statue that makes the animal vulnerable as prey, dik-diks seek dense bush and grass habitats that provide good coverage as well as food. The antelope got its name by the sound it makes when threatened by a predator. As the dik-dik flees in a zig-zag pattern, the dik-dik will whistle through its nose and make a crying sound that sounds like “dik-dik”. _____ Care of the wildlife. #africanamazing #african_portraits #allnatureshots @andbeyondsafari #animalelite #animalpolis #animal_sultans #exclusive_animals #ig_africa #ig_discover_wildlife #igs_africa #igscwildlife #loves_africa #majestic_wildlife @asiliaafrica #mysafaristory #natgeowild #ruaha #splendid_animals #travelandbeyond #super_africa #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifephotographic #WildlifePlanet #wildlife_seekers #wildlife_perfection #wildlifepage @wildplanetphotomag #wildlifephotographic #world_bestanimal #wu_africa #dikdik
