-Their noses are a bit elongated and often bent to the side
-They mark their territories with tears
-They’re monogamous
-They're named from the sounds they make

@JonathanMBR I have seen them in Zoo shows, such cute creatures.


They also show that big eyes *are* to be found in nature, not just cartoon characters.

@GustavinoBevilacqua I don't know whether Dik Dik the antelope was named before 1960s, because in our Kimeru language we call Dik Dik 'Nthuni'
