Salt's Dik-dik


Salt's Dik-dik (Madoqua saltiana) is a small antelope found in semi-desert, bushland, and thickets in the Horn of Africa, but marginally also in northern Kenya and eastern Sudan.
They are shy animals. They are active at night and dusk to avoid the midday heat. Dominant males flare their crests. The animals are most often found in pairs and small groups, and Salt's Dik-dik mainly eats leaves and shoots of acacia trees.
