So I have in -- when I saw a lot of stress on my trip I did not see any of them doing anything like that what are they doing.
Well and us.
One of the things about this whole series is showing you things to think you might know about Africa -- -- -- his -- -- refused to Ross a gentle creatures what happens when.
Two males fight over female and they're very beautiful the team as you can see why that I haven't.
-- -- two males fight if if they're evenly matched uzis to.
In this fights go on and on around what the thing is that slash -- each other within maximum had to have these little spiky hormones which we will -- -- -- but actually that.
-- I live -- life like getting hit on our mates yeah.
And so they do at each other and eventually try and knock each other -- what happened who won.
Well it's a story between a young male and an old man yes and the young maelstrom it could -- my off the -- -- males got the female.
And are excellent commentary -- Funny you ended as a lot of the little -- -- to the young man has a little trick up its sleeve the -- I was still going good friend.

I hit one of things that if you if you watch animals on lost you realize that that all characters or individuals and you have stupid ones who have come and a strong -- -- -- -- not dead just like cops.
I knew it and with -- -- this two drops.
You could see -- them have their own little tricks that there was like a boxing match wasn't just a slugging match.
One of them have a one -- -- -- for the legs when -- -- from the back that definitely have their strategies and in the end it was very hard to know who's gonna win.
But time and say -- got a few tricks up its.
I can't wait to see Ed -- a look at that leopard.
Pictures that you have -- wow.
We and -- leopards or I'm -- good -- again again.
This is -- -- that we are very lucky here because this.
We -- if there's a family.
We were able to follow this is this the young man he's just the point when he has to leave his his his mom -- the cup players all probably right -- pretty up and -- and the thing is that's.
What happens like -- you know youngster he just makes mistake after mistake after mistake he's trying to he's trying to find food for -- we try to -- for war -- Can't do that in just a tribunal can go to an Atlanta content -- and then he finds his mother's stacks -- what difference does that.
Yeah because it's hard to come -- they -- -- up in the tree.
And so that nobody else can get it he tries to get it and as he's walking up the tree his -- sort of booby -- he doesn't we have just intrusive rocks pulls the -- And it tries again.
-- and it's just not his day just keeps mistake -- -- clearly that shot in the sang -- you know this is all this is alone in the southwest of product has so this is done in the it in in the Kalahari and -- -- there which is the oldest is about.
Africa and Atlantic and this frog picture casinos and has the smallest animals also are so fascinating we'll have to be if we make sure it's not just the big ones yet the small ones and this is this is the grateful for what -- -- right.
It's another makes you so this is and this man is trying to get the females and what he has -- he has to climb to the top of the trees to cool.
And it was she does but it won't read what -- get something he finds that or the other guys who beat -- so -- have com.
To stop fighting.
It's like dance on yeah -- an answer them he unity is to see how it's one he has because that's -- that's a little.
But but just what you're his head anyway hits it's tough -- -- the top of the tree when he gets up that.
Justified and these folks we have no idea that might kick boxes that we thought they might have wrestled but they did an excerpt from the -- -- and try and knock each other off.
In the end he finally wins Aaron gets gets gets his female.
But then -- who was -- clever is that I'm there's no -- on the ground so they have to him.
They have to wait until -- who lives so they put that it takes a little little envelope made out of her belief in the mail to lose them in that.
And then when the rain comes in makes the pools beneath them to leave us -- today understood it dissolves the -- and the eggs in the baby's dropped into the water from the -- home.
