Gargwa are quite low in the food chain. They feed on a variety of fruits, insects, fish, and vegetation. Though they eat a variety of food items, their favorite prey is Thunderbugs. However, they are common prey for predators such as Great Jaggi, Tigrex, Gore Magala, Arzuros, Rathian, Rathalos, Nargacuga, Zinogre, and Deviljho. People of the Yukumo Village use them as livestock and draft animals.
Gargwa are covered in an array of colorful feathers. These feathers don't have much use but cover the Garwga for camouflage. A Gargwa's beak is made of an insulating material that prevents them from being shocked by their favorite prey, Thunderbugs. This makes them the natural predator of the Thunderbugs.
Gargwa are docile among humans, though they will attack if harassed or cornered. If startled by a predator, Garwga will either leave behind droppings or lay an egg for protection.
