Two Cape Buffalos (Syncerus caffer). Adult bulls will spar in play, dominance interactions or actual fights. A bull will approach another, lowing, with his horns down and wait for the other bull to do the same thing. When sparring, the bulls twist their horns from side to side. If the sparring is for play, the bulls may rub each other's faces and bodies during the sparring session. Actual fights are violent but rare and brief. Calves may also spar in play, but adult females rarely spar at all. Image captured in Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa's Eastern Cape.
