Original text on this topic:
The natural diet consists of leaves and shoots of a wide variety of trees and shrubs, many characteristic of fringing forest or secondary growth. Small trees are pushed over and broken up by trampling before the foliage is eaten. The captive female at Copenhagen Zoo is fed on lucerne hay, supplemented by 10 kg daily of mixed raw potatoes, carrots and apples, and small amounts of rolled oats.
