Fun facts about the dik-dik

This species of the antelope is probably smaller than your pet dog as it stands at about 30-40 centimeters and weigh about 3-6 kilograms.

Fathers run off their male offspring from their territory when they reach adult size and mothers do the same to the female offspring.

Dik-diks also excrete the most concentrated urine and driest poop of any hooved animal.
