By day they roam around territories that may be up to 5 hectares in size. Each home range contains a number of favourite trees to which they return to regularly to lick sap and gum. Their incisor teeth are specially shaped to carve small holes in the bark from which the sap flows. At night they sleep in tree holes or other shelters.
Family groups contain up to 10 animals, consisting of the dominant female, her mate and their offspring. The young remain in the group, even when adult, to help care for their younger siblings.
