Sparring gemsbok, Kalahari

During a serious fight, gemsbok stand side to side, and rear back with their heads, trying to drive their sharp, pointy horns into each other. Injuries can be quite severe in such cases.

This sure lookd like a serious fight - the loser disengaged and started high-tailing it out of there, while the winner pursued him hotly for a short while.
