Impala

Young male Impala spend a lot of time play-fighting and in the process, sometimes a horn gets damaged. This means that they will never be able to compete for the females when it is breeding time.

Wow that reminds me of the cow with the crumpled horn :-) I think we are inclined to take Impala a bit for granted, but the are such pretty creatures. Have a good weekend. Diane
