Immediately to the left of the 2,000 lb eland is the dik-dik which together with the blue duiker are South Africa's smallest antelope weighing a mere 9-11 lbs.

At the top right is a klipspringer (translated as "rock jumper", weighing around 20 lbs. The name suggests its habitat - rocky outcrops. It has two unique features - it is the only species in its genus, and it is totally independent of water.

To its left is a female common duiker and typically weighs 35 lbs. Common is the identifying description - they are all over South Africa and commonly seen. The duiker has very, very good meat and maybe the only one of the tiny ten which is now and then hunted. In fact I still have two duiker rear legs and a sirloin in my freezer.

Below the duiker is a Sharpe's grysbok, which weighs 20-23 lbs. "grys" refers to the individual "greying hairs" inbetween the rufus pelt.
