The Nilgai diet consists of mostly grass, and they flourish in the Texas Hill Country environment, as they prefer the dry weather to wet. The Nilgai can be combative, and seek to injure other Nigai, and kill Eland Bulls, during fights. They tend to breed during the winter, December to March, and the Birth Season is typically August to November as Gestation is 8 1/4 months.
The Nigai antelope male reach sexual maturity at age 2 1/2 and the female at 18 months.
