    Equipment Note

In the first four segments of this recording, the individual is eating a combination of fresh vegetation and leave litter in front of it. It moves several approximately 2 meters throughout the recordings.

In the last two segments of this recording, the individual attempts to eat a juvenile Gastonia mauritiana. It puts its mouth around a single leaf, but does not eat it, and instead continues eating the grass and leaf litter in front of it.
