Muudaboks preferred the muddy woodlands, but were also found in the shallows nibbling mintri and woosha plants. The muudabok used its claws to dig up these roots and new shoots under rotting vegetable matter.
Like many swamp dwellers, the muudabok had a streamlined shape for swimming, as it frequently crossed waterways from pasture to pasture, though, it did not dive. At the end of a Muudabok's tail were knobs that acted as both floats and weapons. The muudabok was also a very good leaper and took advantage of its ability to leap considering its primary enemy was the speedy narglatch.
During mating season, stags trumpeted and roared to attract females. Stags formed harems to defend against other males. Males health declined after mating, making them more susceptible to predators.
Gungans often caught muudaboks for their horns (females being a distinctive onion-shape) to use as a musical instrument.
