Almost all about animals: avoiding animal cruelty, observations about daily life with animals, treks to see animals in the wild, acting to preserve habitat and conserve species, animal photos and more. Also a bit about Idaho and life in Boise.
The dik dik is a very small deer, smaller than a medium sized dog. About 18" tall, they are generally found in mated pairs, sometimes with a youngster, near the bottom of a bush. We came across this little dik dik in Lake Manyara, resting under a bush. They have adorable noses that are always moving from side to side. They have such delicate, tiny legs they are like pencils - with eraser sized hooves. Dik dik are completely adorable and I would love to be able to touch them....but of course since I haven't run into a tame one this is not likely to ever happen. I bet a baby dik dik is one of the cutest living things.
