Ready to rumble...

By rogerfry
This elegant pair of young males were practising their fighting skills, ready for the battles ahead. The versions show them in action.

Anyone who saw the nature programme a few weeks ago, showing two males involved in a serious fight , will appreciate just how powerful their necks are.....one of the giraffes was knocked off his feet and seemed to be unconscious for a while....really heavy stuff, not playing like these two!

Many thanks for the votes and comments on my Hippo shots, and special thanks to Ugly for the UA.
