So what do you get when you combine a tiger and a deer? A Zebra Duiker (Cephalophus zebra) of course!!
A small antelope from Africa, the Zebra Duiker has a gold or red-brown coat with obvious zebra (or tiger)-like stripes on its backside. They grow to be 45 centimetres in height and weigh up to 20 kilogrammes.
There are only around 28,000 individuals left in the wild.
