The leaf muntjac weighs about 11 kg (25 lb).
The leaf muntjac is found in dense forest habitats at an elevation of 450 - 600 m (1500 - 2000'), the transition zone between tropical lowland forests and higher temperate forests (Rabinowitz 1998).
Young muntjacs are generally born in dense jungle growth, where they remain hidden until they can move around with their mother (Nowak 1999).
The leaf muntjac eats mostly fruit (Rabinowitz 1998).
Both diurnal and nocturnal activity have been reported for muntjac species in general.
The leaf muntjac is solitary (Rabinowitz 1998).
