Chester Zoo’s Claire McPhee told the Chester Chronicle:
A dik-dik is one of the smallest species of antelope in the world, mostly found in eastern and southwestern Africa, and this pint-sized cutie, called Neo, measures in at only 20cm and 1.3kg. But there’s a tale of woe attached to these adorable images - baby Neo was rejected by his mother at the zoo - so it’s up to his eight-month-old sister Aluna (also abandoned) and the zookeepers to take over him.
"Dik-dik mothers do not always take to their young and unfortunately Neo and his mum didn’t quite hit it off…but happily his not-so-big sister Aluna…is drawing on her own experiences and is being a real calming influence on him"
