Etosha National Park

Kirk's Dik-dik (Madoqua kirkii) delicately framed by grass stalks along the appropriately named Dik Dik drive near Klein Namutoni Waterhole, Etosha National Park, Namibia.
Biology Note:- To prevent overheating, dik-diks have elongated snouts with bellow-like muscles through which blood is pumped. Airflow and subsequent evaporation cools this blood before it is recirculated to the body. However, this panting is only implemented in extreme conditions—dik-diks can tolerate air temperatures of up to 104°Fahrenheit (40 °C).(Wikipedia)
