The Ruwenzori Duiker or Ruwenzori Red Duiker (Cephalophus rubidus), is a stocky but small antelope found only in the Ruwenzori Mountains between Uganda and, probably, Democratic Republic of Congo. They may be a sub-species of the Black-fronted Duiker or the Red-flanked Duiker.
The Ruwenzori Duiker weighs about 15 kilograms and has a shoulder height of about 45 centimeters. They have a rufous coat, lighter on the underbelly and darker on the back. Their short prong-like horns are about 8 centimetres long.
They are found in sub-alpine zones above 3,000 meters, where they eat herbs. They are diurnal.
