Dik-diks eat a diet of leaves, shoots, fruit and berries, but hardly any grass!
Dik-diks live in shrublands and savannas of eastern Africa - they can live in many conditions as long as there are plenty of edible plants and lots of cover!
Dik-diks out run predators by getting up to 26mph and running in a z(i)g-z(a)g pattern!
Kirk’s dik-diks grow to a maximum size of just 40cm, making them one of the smallest species of antelope in the world.
The species takes its name from Sir John Kirk, a 19th century Scottish naturalist, as well as the sound it makes when fleeing from danger.
Kirk’s dik-diks are native to North East Africa and conservationists say they mark their territory with fluid from glands between their toes and just under their eyes, not dissimilar to tears.
