[4] They are classified as megaherbivores and consume up to 150 kg (330 lb) of plant matter per day. [29] They are generalist feeders, and both grazers and browsers, and were recorded to feed on 112 different plant species, most commonly of the order Malvales, and the legume, palm, sedge and true grass families. [30] They browse more in the dry season with bark constituting a major part of their diet in the cool part of that season.
