  Meet Sprinkle, one of our Blue duikers that you can visit at the Duiker habitat in Trails of Africa! .  Blue duikers (pronounced dike-er) are the smallest of the 15 duiker species! They are a small species of antelope found throughout the dense forests of Western Africa. Duiker is an Afrikaans word that means 'diver' because when they are startled they dive into the dense underbrush to evade predators. . #BlueDuiker #BhamZoo #BirminghamZoo  Jessie G., Lead Animal Care Professional - Animal Health Center
