UPDATE ON POST #46 (22/12/2016).

In light of a recently published paper (de Jong & Butynski 2017), I am fairly sure that my image titled Cavendish's Dik-dik is incorrectly identified.

It is almost certainly of HINDE'S DIK-DIK, Madoqua hindei, previously (as with Cavendish's Dik-dik) considered a subspecies of M. kirkii.

Apologies for any confusion caused.

Delicate and agile don't mean unwary. The alertness conveyed by dik-dik eyes is impressive.

A Dik-dik's outline reflects specialized adaptation to the exigencies of their life. I'm impressed every time that I see them.

Yes the Lesser Kudu is rather too large for this thread I think but I've given it a Like @BRACQUENE 'cos it's such a special sighting. Beautifully captured in that statuesque pose.

Lovely follow up posts too. I have a special fondness for Oribis.

Nice photos @BRACQUENE.   I still have yet to see Günther's Dik-Dik - it is shaping up to be a "nemesis mammal" for me.
