The Grey Duiker

The Grey Duiker is one of the antelope species that have adapted to be able to go long periods of time without drinking water from a waterhole, especially during the rainy season. Indeed sometimes they don’t drink any water during the wet season. This is because they get enough moisture from the fruit they find lying under the trees. They are also active during the day as well as during the night, at night usually close to human settlements. If and when they do rest, they tend to find a thick shrub and lie under there during the heat of the day until disturbed.
