Caption: Male nyala (Tragelaphus angasii) standing in front of a watering hole displaying to another male to win a female (neither seen). During the display the nyala raises its head, tail and dorsal crest of white hair. Usually the subordinate male withdraws, but occasionally there is a fight involving the horns, which can lead to serious injury or death. It lives in transient herds of between 2 and 40 in dense bush near water in southern Africa. It is a grazer and browser that eats a wide variety of vegetation. Photographed in Mkhuzi, South Africa.
