Klipspringer

Klipspringer

Kopje (Dutch), monadnock (American Indian), and inselberg (German) are all weird words that I’ve never heard of before. They mean an isolated rocky hill usually surrounded by a veld. A veld is an area of land with few trees. Now that we have that straightened out, guess who lives on the kopje? YES! The Klipspringer! They are tiny little jumping ballerina antelopes. They can squeeeeeeeze their tiny wittle hooves all together in an area as small as a silver dollar, while balancing and looking adorable.
