Smallest Antelope

Posted by admin 23 Aug 2015 Comments Off

The World Record of ‘smallest antelope’ has been achieved by the royal antelope (Neotragus pygmaeus) from West Africa.

The royal antelope is only 25–30 cm (10–12 inches) high at the shoulder and weighing only 3.2–3.6 kg (7–8 lb) and is the smallest of all antelopes. The calf is small enough to fit into the average person’s open hand. The male has small, spike-like horns, about 2.5 cm (1 inch) long.
