Adults will emit a whistling through the nostrils mainly during rut or mating rituals, while younger will bleat.The animal is very active throughout the day, it feeds on grasses of flooded grasslands. Vegetarian, it can in case of shortage feed on flowers or leaves. It drinks at least once a day, which explains its proximity to water bodies.
