Nocturnal, probably most active at dawn and dusk. Spends day in burrow excavated by itself often under dense shrubbery. Home range probably small, within 200–300m of the burrow. Diet presumably similar to Long-eared Hedgehog, but reportedly more carnivorous including insects, grubs, small vertebrates, and probably fruit, roots, etc.
