Happy Hump Day!

Meet Aluna! She is dik-dik antelope who lives at the Chester Zoo. According to Zooborns:

For now, she is being bottle-fed milk five times a day by the zoo's dedicated curator of mammals after she failed to bond with her mother. She will be given a helping hand until she is old enough to tuck into a diet of buds, shoots and fruit on her own.


"She's already pretty quick on her feet and gives us quite the run around in the office. That's why we've called here Aluna which means ‘come here' in Swahili. It's rather apt!"
