Step Into the Wild: Meet the Dik-dik

Play Video

Step into the Wild Zookeeper Brittany at the Cameron Park Zoo. Meet Dik-Dik Velcro (four years old) & Dik-Dik Hinata (one-year-old). The name ‘dik-dik’ derives from their alarm call, which sounds like wheezing or whistling, “zik-zik” or “dik-dik.” The little black spot in the corner of their eyes is a preorbital gland they use to mark their territory. These animals live in the Africa section of the zoo, along with the Kori bustards and sulcata tortoise.
