Animals from A-Z

Red Forest Duiker

(engl: Red Forest Duiker)

No horn is too small

Red Forest Duikers are small antelopes. Both genders have short, straight horns. These are less pronounced in females. Occasionally, they may not even have any. Red Forest Duikers have a tuft of hair on their forehead, which often obscures their tiny horns.

Gourmet Foodies

These shy animals live hidden in the dense undergrowth of the tropical rainforest. While foraging for food, the foodies are fussy and only take the best pieces. So they have as little competition as possible, they mostly live alone.
