Antelopes battle it out at Lamai


The area around Kogakuria kopje is well known for its fierce cats, but even the most gentle-looking animals in this corner of the Serengeti have to be prepared to battle. The recent rains have brought fresh grass and the grazers are beginning to regain condition. Not very long from now, the rutting season will begin and male antelopes will clash for breeding rights. The struggles have already begun, some for practice and some for glory, and they’re adding their own touch of action to Lamai. Credit goes to Dirk for all the pictures.
