A list of my favorite images of zebra duikers.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zebra_duiker

The zebra duiker (Cephalophus zebra) is a small antelope found primarily in Liberia, as well as the Ivory Coast, Sierra Leone and occasionally Guinea. They are sometimes referred to as the banded duiker or striped-back duiker. It is believed to be one of the earliest duiker species to have evolved.

Zebra duikers have gold or red-brown coats with 12-16 distinctive zebra-like stripes, dark markings on their upper legs, and russet faces. Newborns appear darker because they are born with their stripes closer together.

An adult can grow to 90 cm (35 in) in length, 45 cm in height and 20 kg (44 lb) in weight. Their horns are short and round with sharp pointed tips. They are about 4.5 - 5.0 cm long in males and half that in females. Female body size is larger than males, possibly due to long gestation periods.

Zebra duikers live in lowland primary rainforests, particularly by clearings and along forest margins. They can less commonly be found in hill and low-mountain forests.

They are ruminants which feed primarily on fruit, foliage and seeds. Though rare, there is evidence that they may eat rodents on occasion. Their reinforced nasal bones enable them crack open the hard exterior of certain fruits.

You never know, Peter, but the zebra genes seem to be more dominant in this case. I wouldn't be too frightened of being chased by one of these critters. :)
