Blue Duiker in Amanzimtoti

One Man's Opinion

Got a new camera, and was looking unhappily out the window at the rain; I wanted to go out and play with my new toy. Something caught my eye on the pavement; I saw it was not a small dog, nor a big rabbit. Could not believe my eyes, a Duiker, in the suburbs of Amanzimtoti! Grabbed camera and out in the rain I went. The tiny animal came back out of the dense foliage and crossed the road. I thought it was the world’s smallest antelope, but then found out that one that is smaller, is a bit North West of here.

“Royal antelope, a hare-sized denizen of West Africa’s lowland rainforest that is the world’s smallest antelope. The similar dwarf antelope  is only slightly bigger. Both belong to the Neotragini tribe of dwarf antelopes that includes the dik-dik, steenbok, klipspringer, and oribi.”

A fantastic sighting none the less…
