In Real Life

Blackbuck live on open woodlands and semi-desert areas, but also enjoy areas with thorn or dry deciduous forest. They like to stay near areas where grassland is available.

On hot days blackbucks rest in the Blackbuck are grazers, they feed on short grass, various cultivated cereals, fruits, pods, flowers, shrubs and herbs.

Blackbucks are gregarious and social animals with herds generally ranging from 5 to 50 animals. The herds are harems, with a single adult male and a number of adult females and their young. They tend to be diurnal during the cool season. In the hot season, they are active in the very early morning and late afternoon, resting in the shade at other times. Because of past persecutions, blackbuck are very shy and wary.

The blackbuck is predated upon by a number of species, including wolves and leopards, and relies mainly on its speed in order to escape. When a potential predator is sighted, the blackbuck can leap extraordinarily high into the air, before performing a number of smaller leaps and then galloping away. Their sense of smell and hearing are not highly developed so they rely on eyesight in detecting danger. Fast as any antelope, the only predator they cannot outrun is the [Cheetah].

The blackbuck was once the most abundant hoofed mammal in India and Pakistan, but their populations have been greatly reduced through excessive hunting for its skin, flesh and also for sports, loss of habitat due to agricultural development is part of that too.
