This animal turned out to be a little mouse-deer, or dik-dik.
After I had gone a little way a dik-dik crossed the dry river-bed in front of me; I fired at him, but it was too long a shot.
They are all small, the dik-dik being scarcely larger than a rabbit, and they are divided into as many subspecies as the duiker.
dik-dik flesh is very good eating; it tastes better roasted when one has bacon to add to it.
For instance, there's the oribi and the dik-dik, to say nothing of the steinbuck and the klipspringer.
At the time the dik-dik came out I heard pigs grunting in a little dell below me, but I could not see them at all.
Going through the jungle I put up a dik-dik hind; this animal trotted away out of shot range, and then stopped and looked at me.
