The bay duiker mainly prefers fruits. It feeds on the large fruits of "Irvingia" species (wild mango), "Detarium macrocarpum" and the spherical fruits of "Mammea africana". Other fruits the duiker may eat are those of "Ricinodendron heudelotii" and oil-palms, the orange ones of "Chrysophyllum beguei", the olive-like ones of "Pseudospondias longifolia", the green plums of "Panda oleosa" and those of "Cola rostrata", that resemble cocoa pods. The bay duiker extracts the pulp from the seeds, making a grating sound. If the seeds are large, the duiker spits them out. Smaller seeds such as those of "Antrocaryon" species may be ingested. A 1989 study found that the soft seeds of plants such as "Drypetes
", "Staudtia gabonensis", "Dacryoides buettneri", "Ongokea gore", "Santiria trimera", "Annonidium mannii" and "Pentaclethra macrophylla" are preferred. There have been reports of the bay duiker preying on birds (without feeding on the legs and wings) and the embryo of unhatched eggs, carrion, remains of African porcupines and kusimanses, termites, beetles and ants. Dog food may serve as supplement for captive individuals.
