Raphicerus campestris

1) Steenbok
2) steinbock (or Ibex)
3) Since this is a small animal,the tracks it leaves are small with sharp points. Steenbok tread with their hoofs pointing down into the ground.

4) If a predator or perceived threat comes closer, a Steenbok will leap away and follow a zigzag route to try to shake off the pursuer. Escaping Steenbok frequently stop to look back, and flight is alternated with prostration during extended pursuit. They are known to take refuge in the burrows of Aardvarks.
