The Dik Dik Is Your New Favorite Mini Animal

All of y'all other mini animals better go home. You've been beat.

Meet Aluna. Her name means "come here" in Swahili. She is a dik dik, which means she's basically a mini antelope. She's only 8 inches tall!!!!!!

She's being reared by the Chester Zoo after failing to bond with her mother.

After looking at this post, you will want her. And you will be insanely jealous of the zookeeper there.
