Pecking Order

One of my favorite Elephant images ever!

20140121 - CS2_0773 - T

These two young bulls were sparring to measure their strength. The younger of the two – on the left – did not want to give up and kept provoking the older – and much heavier – one. The Thanda guests enjoyed this prolonged spectacle on the open savannah all around the game drive vehicle.

  1. Great action shot. Thinking back, can’t remember ever seeing a photo of elephant sparring. Perhaps on a wildlife show but not a still shot. That must have been quite and experience. Sorry I missed it. )o:
