This beautiful animal prefers to inhabit areas with long bushes as it provides cover against predators and food. Females show an interesting mating behavior in which they perform lingering jumps (pronking) with tails curved and lifted upward, releasing a specific welcoming scent. The little ones are always shy and prefer to hide in their rooms for the first two months, coming out only to eat and get groomed.
This reedbuck species also likes to hang out with family and friends. However, solitary animals could be seen looking for food in the dry season. Territorial behavior is observed in males, who seem to get offended if males from other groups try to become too friendly
