Restricted to East Africa , this dik-dik is known to occur in Ethiopia , Kenya , Somalia , Sudan and Uganda (Wilson & Reeder, 1993; East, 1996). A distribution map was obtained from Kingdon (1971-77), then updated using the country maps in East (1988) as indicated by Dr. R. East ( 23 June '97 ).
Its movable trunk-like nose helps keep it cool. Weighing 6.6 to 11 pounds -- about the size of a hare -- the dik-dik is one of the smallest antelopes. It can make the hair on its head stand up. It walks on both hooves and pseudo-claws
