Males and females are usually polygamous, and territorial males and females remain as separate and independent social units. When there are many neighboring territories, a male may guard an all-female herd while in his territory, but will change guardianship as different female herds enter and exit. Females normally give birth to one young at a time, but may give birth to more under ideal conditions. Births occur generally in tandem with the rainy season, when food is plentiful, and can occur throughout the year. Females isolate themselves from the herd before giving birth and remain solitary with her young immediately after the birth. Males have little or no parental activity toward the young.
