Vicious hunters, canisphinxes often chased their prey across the desert sands for hours, waiting for the victim to drop from exhaustion.[2]


Canisphinxes prefered prey that was too weak to fight back, and they usually fled in the face of stronger opposition. When they decided to fight, they tried to pin their foes and finish them off with bite and rake attacks.[2]


Though these creatures generally hunted alone, a mated pair occasionally ganged up on prey as a prelude to some sort of courting behavior.[2]
