    Dik-dik

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dik-dik

    See - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dik-dik#Diet

    "Like all even-toed ungulates, they digest their food with the aid of microorganisms in the their four-chambered stomach"

    They are a favorite of many animals, particularly cheetahs.

    "Dik-diks are hunted primarily by monitor lizards, and smaller cats such as the caracal, as well as lions, hyenas, wild dogs, and humans. The dik-dik's other predators are leopards, cheetahs, jackals, baboons, eagles, hawks and pythons."

    I probably wouldn't have gotten it either. Though I did see the most adorable picture of one just yesterday on Facebook:
