Predators: Although they provide potential prey to carnivorous mammals, because they are so rare it is unlikely that saola are important in local food webs.
Symbiotic Relationships: It is in a mutualistic relationship with the fig tree. The Saola eats figs from the fig tree. In return, after the figs are digested the seeds are disposed in the form of waste, thus pollinating the fig tree.
