Mini Antelope Packs Plenty of Cuteness
Published on September 24, 2013
A sweet klipspringer is thriving behind the scenes at Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo, thanks to a dedicated group of keepers.
The little one, who was born in early August, has been hand-reared since its mom didn’t provide it with the proper care, reported Zooborns.
While the baby is still growing, the tiny antelope is only expected to reach 20 inches and weigh about 24 pounds when it’s fully grown.
This klipspringer dwells in rocky habitats in Central and Eastern Africa and has hooves with a rubbery texture that helps them grip the terrain.
