Brief SummaryRead full entry
BiologyDuikers are shy animals that move around alone or in pairs (3). Like other duikers, pairs of black-fronted duikers inhabit a territory that is marked with scented secretions from glands on the face (2). Within this area of habitat, the duiker follows regular paths from its sleeping shelter to feeding grounds (2), where it consumes a variety of fruit and succulent vegetation (2). Information on the life history of the black-fronted duiker is lacking, but an individual in captivity lived for nearly 20 years (3).
