Klipspringer

Names: Klipspringer

Klipsprings are antelopes.  They are very good at climbing.  They walk on the tips of their hooves.  Their hooves are covered with a rubber-like coating to help them grip rocks.  They are able to stand on narrow, steep surfaces and can jump from rock to rock.

They live in East Africa to South Africa.  They are a small antelope measuring around 18-20 inches tall at the shoulder and weighing around 20 pounds.
