Dik-dik antelope

  1. There are two species of dik-dik in Kenya - do you know if this is a Kirk's or Gunther's? Posted 2 years ago
    1. I've compared the descriptions of each appearance but there's few differences other than size, Kirk's being larger. Yet when comparing photos, I keep seeing Gunthers' Dik Dik having this weird deformed nose. So my guess is Kirks :) Posted 2 years ago
  2. Seriously adorable creature. I was curious about that black spot under its eye, and read this on Wikipedia: "A bare black spot below the inside corner of each eye contains a preorbital gland that produces a dark, sticky secretion. Dik-diks insert grass stems and twigs into the gland to scent-mark their territories."
