Little Guys

These are dikdiks, named after the sound they create.  They stand about 15 inches at the shoulder and weigh about 10 pounds and are a member of the antelope family.  They are unique in that they never need a drink of water,  receiving sufficient liquid from the plants they eat.  They mate for life and when one of them dies, the other commits suicide.  They are cute, huh?
