Penguin here.

I just read about klipspringers the other day. They are actually a species of antelope from Eastern and Southern Africa. According to the Chicago Zoological Society’s Klipsringer article, (which you should check out), klipspring is Dutch for “rock-jumper”. This is because klipspringers live on rocky cliffs where they can jump and climb using their short, stout, muscular bodies to escape predators.
Klipspringers are little cuties, now aren’t they?
