(Madoqua kirkii) Rowland Ward minimum: 2 3/8".
Only found in northern Namibia. The Eastern Karst woodlands in Etosha National Park are their favourite habitat, particularly the tamboti woodlands east of Fort Namutoni. Females weigh average 14 lbs and males 12 lbs, and stand 16" and 15" high.
Due to their small size, excellent camouflage and habit of standing motionless to avoid detection they are difficult to spot, even though they often stand close to the roads. They are quite tame and will withstand observation for some time before moving off.
Pairs bond for life and males are dominant. Males do not help with the rearing of young and cover the female's scent markings with their own in order to maintain the pair bond
