March 5, 6, 7 –Spectacular Showdowns –Animals in Conflict –We humans often assume that wild creatures consistently duel to the death. Nothing could be farther from the truth! In fact, all animals go to great lengths to avoid fighting. The reason for this behavior is not kindness, but the instinct to live. They somehow instinctively know that even the winner can suffer serious injury.The rarity of major confrontations makes such battles all the more compelling.
