Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Found in slow or standing waters, among bushes of shore vegetation (Ref. 27732). Occurs in medium to large-sized rivers and flooded fields (Ref. 12975), lakes, ponds and swamps (Ref. 41236). Feeds on filamentous algae, submerged land plants, fruits and seeds with some aquatic insects and crustaceans (Ref. 12693). Undertakes lateral migrations from the Mekong River to the floodplains during the flood season and back again at the onset of the dry season (Ref. 37770).
