Spot the klipspringer!

Just in case you don’t know what a klipspringer is, it’s a small African antelope (Oreotragus oreotragus) that looks like this when it’s visible:

Cute, no? Well, reader Michelle de Villiers sent in a photo that has not one, but two klipspringers hidden in it. It was taken in Kruger National Park. Can you spot them? Answer in a few hours. (Click photo to enlarge.)

As usual, if you spot it you can laud yourself in the comments, but please don’t reveal where the animals are!

    Definitely got one, but am not sure if I spotted the 2nd.
    In some of these, double clicking embiggens, and sometimes it does not.

    Maybe found one, but that’s so fuzzy that I give up. It would be helpful if they climbed trees like the goats in Djibouti.

    Easy as paint by numbers.

      … [TURNS SLOWLY] clever girl!

      (Darn Interwebs, eating my angle brackets.)

        I spotted the cryptic one too … I think.

        “eating my angle brackets”.

        They have become angel brackets, expired and bereft of life, resting in bits.

    All this time I’d thought the jackalope was a cryptozoological creature that Americans out west had made up to have some fun at the expense of us eastern tenderfoots.

    Got ’em. Didn’t take long. Now it’s just waiting to find out if I’m right.

    I love klipspringers. We saw some in Tanzania in 2012, always in pairs. They always seem to be standing on their toes, but that is an illusion due to their black hooves. I have a couple nice pix of them here and here, alway a couple.

      Oh, yes, I only see the one standing on a rock. They seem to like rocks. Could the second one be behind it, a bit to the left?

      “They always seem to be standing on their toes, but that is an illusion due to their black hooves.”

      Well, a biologically correct illusion, then. 🙂

    It is standing on a rock about halfway up the picture and just in from the left side of the shot as one looks at it.

    “but please don’t reveal where the animals are!”

    Perhaps you should have put this in CAPS at the top?

    At any rate, I did not have all that much trouble with either.

    I see three animals, not two!

      Hmm…the larger version makes it clear that the apparent 3rd animal is an artifact of the smaller version. So, just two.
