Never heard of them. He's too cute for words.

So adorable!

I wonder how my cats would get along with a dik dik for a brother or sister?

When I was about 10, I got a book out of the library "Wild Animals Nobody Knows", featuring a couple dozen species, including the Dik-dik. Also the Kinkajou, Echidna, Pangolin, etc.

Adorable! It gets about the size of a hare? So those pictures are a baby, but they must not get too much bigger?

I want one too! I wonder if you can house train them......

I was curious to know how big a hare gets and found that .... They range in weight from 3 to 13 lb (1.4-5.9 kg) and from 13 to 25 in. (33-63 cm) in length.

So this pretty baby will remain a teensy weensy antelope! I love her!
