About the Blue Duiker (Philantomba monticola)

The Blue Duiker is the smallest of the duiker species. Its primary habitats are the fringes of the open savannas and tropical forests of Africa. Compared to other variations of the duiker, they have small stout vertical horns and smaller deer shaped bodies, which allow them to run faster and for longer distances. The duiker is an omnivore, but it does tend to mostly diet on seeds and fruits, since it is very particular about consuming only the most nutricious parts of the plant.

DELIVERY OF YOUR ITEM VIA FREIGHT SERVICE

This item ships FREE via Freight Delivery.

When items are too large to ship with a common carrier (UPS, FedEx, etc) we are then required to ship with a freight service, which will deliver your shipment on a semi truck. We utilize a variety of freight carriers to quickly and safely transport large shipments to our clients around the U.S.

We pack and ship all of our items with a dedication to safe and secure transit, and over 40 years of taxidermy-shipping experience, utilizing innovative new ways to pack your order in a wooden crate, ensuring it arrives to you in the exact same conditon that it left our store.

If your item is shipping via freight, please let us know if the destination is a Residence or Business, as well as a Phone Number(s) for the delivery location so that the freight company can contact you to set up a specific delivery date and time when your package gets close to its final destination.

UNLOADING YOUR FREIGHT SHIPMENT

When the shipment arrives, it is the CUSTOMERS responsibilty to have either a forklift or enough strong helping hands available to unload the item from the back of a semi truck to the ground and then to its final destination.

For an additional fee, we can arrange to have a semi truck trailer that is equipped with a lift gate that will lower the crate to the ground. This service ONLY lowers the crate off of the semi truck to the ground, it DOES NOT provide service to move the crate from the spot it is unloaded into your house or business. This lift gate service can be of great help to those that do not have access to a forklift or small crew of people to assist in lifting/lowering the crate to the ground. If you would like this option, you MUST contact our store for a shipping quote that includes this liftgate service.
