Maxwell's duiker (Philantomba maxwellii), is a small antelope found in western Africa.

They grow to 30 in (76 cm) in length with a typical shoulder height of 14.5 to 16 in (37 to 41 cm) and weigh around 11 lb (5.0 kg). Its coat is either grey-brown or grey, with a white underbelly and white markings on its face. However, pale bluish, nearly purple coats have occurred rarely.

Maxwell's duikers live in lowland rainforests, where they eat herbs, fruits, and shrubs.
