Amabokbok the Duiker

I am not sure how many duikers Bosasa has at the Mogale Business Park as they are very skittish creatures of the forest and are solitary creatures. I only saw her once before, on a late wet afternoon, and then again this afternoon when I was leaving work late. This time the duiker stood her ground about two metres away eyeing me out from her high ground. She is a brave little duiker, so let's call her Amabokbok as I am sure I am going to see more of her.

I just stayed awhile as the sun started setting, watching Amabokbok's nose twitched as she tried to get a scent off me. I tried the cat trick of slowly blinking my eyes just to put her at ease. After a while she slowly walked off.
