Acording to what I have read the lifespan of this animal is unknown. It has also been know to use old aardvarks burrows as protection. Although they are regarded as solitary I have had 5 or 6 sightings (from just north of Lower Sabie to Punda) of male and female together with a single sighting of three just before the Mondozi dam turnoff. Interesting to note that the female is larger than the male but that the male is the only one with horns.
