Identify this mystery critter

BacksonI bragged on you guys and how well you identify mystery photos like this fruit, so friends of mine blogged this picture of the newest addition to their menagerie to see if anyone could identify her-nope!  Here’s their post, can you name the ALC (antelope-like creature)?

Spotted and Herbaceous Backson
Can anyone identify our new little antelope?  She has pretty
distinctive markings with white stripes, almost in square patterns, and
white spots on her back.  She has large ears which are colored inside.
We wonder whether she’ll keep the markings as she gets older, and we
wonder how big she will get.  She seems very young (she still has some
dried umbilical cord attached) yet she is already over a foot tall.
Your help is appreciated!  If you send your reply as a comment, others
will be able to read it too.

P.S. Those of you who don’t understand the title might want to brush up on your Winnie the Pooh!

Mystery Lump

LumpI took this picture Christmas Eve morning out in a village not too far from where I live.  What do you think it is?  I’ll post the answer tomorrow.  Here are a few more pictures of the same stuff.   I thought it was really pretty-a nice splash of color during dusty season, when everything is kind of drab.Layers
