Maxwell's Duikers (Cephalophus maxwellii), are small antelopes found in western Africa.
They grow to 30 inches in length with a typical shoulder height of 14.5???16 inches (35 centimetres) and weigh around 11 pounds (5 kilogrammes). Its coat is either grey-brown or grey, with a white underbelly and white markings on its face. However, there have been some rare occurrences of pale bluish, nearly purple coats.
