It eats many different types of vegetation, some of which is poisonous to humans, by using its long tongue to grasp and pull. It will consume red clay by the rivers to get its mineral requirements, and also consumes charcoal from lightning struck trees. Some say that this adds more minerals to its diet, while others say that it counteracts the poison that it consumes.
