They're from Africa and this little one is part of the "Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Kirk's dik-dik Species Survival Plan". The young dik-dik is being raised by animal care staff who are bottle-feeding the baby antelope four to five times a day."
Aww... Look at it. It's so cute.

Wow! That is small. That's barely over a foot tall.
