Reaching approximately 58 cm (22 inches) at the shoulder, klipspringers are smaller than most other antelopes. They stand on the tips of their hooves and can fit all four hooves on a piece of cliff the size of a Canadian dollar coin, roughly 30 mm in diameter. Male klipspringer horns are usually about 10–15 cm (4–6 inches) long. Female klipspringers in eastern African populations also have horns.
