Red duiker live solitarily in dense forest and thickets. They defecate in communal middens and are probably territorial. They make a loud sneezing noise that might be an alarm signal. They eat fresh leaves, forbs and fallen fruit. Red dyiker are a protected red data species that have lost large amounts of habitat to agriculture. At Leopard Walk Lodge, within Suni-Ridge wildlife reserve, they find home in the sand forest and are readily seen in the vicinity of the accommodation and lodge areas.
