Cliffs as Camouflage Canvas
A closer view reveals the klipspringer deer standing proudly on a cliff edge. Highlighting its tiny hooves and suction-cup-like climbing ability, the image illustrates how this robust mammal navigates the challenging terrain using its natural adaptations.
The dry, rocky cliffs of West Africa provide the perfect camouflage for the small brown-coated antelope.

Originally from Johannesburg, Roan said, “One of my guests spotted them first and exclaimed, “What is that?Dwarf antelope are typically found among African kopjes rock formations, providing an excellent vantage point and shelter.

However, they can also thrive in riverbeds, hills, rocky outcrops, and even mountains up to 13,000 feet high. The klipspringer is a small but robust mammal that can reach about two feet at the shoulder and weigh between 8 and 18 kilograms. Their coats, made of hollow, brittle hairs, vary in colour from grey to reddish-brown and yellow and act as effective camouflage in their rocky habitat.

The deer’s most common feature is its tiny hooves, which help them jump over a spot the size of an Oreo biscuit thanks to its suction effect. Fortunately for photographer Roan, klipspringers can be spotted out and about during the early morning and late afternoon hours as they feast on leaves, flowers, fruit and lichen.

They are often found in pairs and communicate with each other using whistles when alarmed. In addition, they use scent to share with strangers: klipspringers can be spotted stationary for long periods as they watch out for predators.
