Klipspringer: a mountain antelope

The klipspringer (Oreotragus oreotragus) is a small tiny-hoofed antelope that lives in mountainous areas of eastern and southern Africa. 

It measures up to 4 feet (1.2 metres) in length and weighs up to 40 pounds (18 kg). It has a glossy olive-yellow coat with yellow and brown specks, fading to white on the underparts and legs. Male klipspringers have small, spiky horns.

Klipspringers browse on evergreen shrubs and live in pairs, raising up to two young at a time.
