Common Duiker (Sylvicapra grimmia)
Duikers stand 55cm/22” tall at the shoulder, with only the males bearing horns. Looking closely, one will observe a tuft of upright hair between the horns. This is sometimes mistakenly recorded as a third horn. Duikers are very agile, often sprinting away at the last moment once danger lurks. Browsers, being most active during the early mornings and late afternoons. Duikers have been observed nibbling on carcasses of other antelope. Water independent.
Penetration is easily achieved with these thin-skinned antelope. Broadside and quartering away shots advised, although full frontal shots can be advantageous should the animal look away. The heart lies quite low in the chest.
