This week has been heavy. The news has been dark and we here at the Gazette wanted some levity. So here you go, the cutest animal in the world: 

Dik-diks are small antelope who only grow to be 30-40 cm tall…


Their home is in eastern and southern Africa. These little antelopes have keen eyesight and can run as fast as 42 km per hour! Dik-diks have too they are hunted by many others like lizards, caracals, lions, hyenas, wild dogs, and more... including humans. They eat foliage, shoots, fruit and berries, but little or no grass.

If you want to see more pictures of this fascinating creature, then visit our source below. 

And now, back to our regularly scheduled glum!
