Giraffes are often considered large but gentle animals.

However, in reality, male giraffes often have to participate in “one-for-one, one-on-one” battles to prove their strength and win the right to mate.

Fierce fights only ended until only one male was left standing. The loser can be seriously injured or even lose his life.

Dana Allen – American photographer specializing in wildlife photography – was fortunate to capture vivid images of a close-up fight for the “beautiful heart” of 2 male giraffes in the National Park South Luangwa in Zambia.

Mr. Allen said: “They were two handsome giraffes competing in strength and skill. I watched them for almost two hours.”


Both of them tried to use their horns and heads to butt, using their legs to kick the hook to cut down the opponent.

“Because of their oversized size, their movements seem to be slow. Their seemingly rhythmic movements also give the impression of tango dance moves. In the end, the winner of the deer left. the same female deer,” added Mr. Allen.
