Male Indian one-horned rhinos Rhinoceros unicornis jostle for supremacy in the Kaziranga National Park. Dominant males will often instigate fights, which can sometimes cause wounds grievous enough to kill. Each weighing more than two tonnes, fortunately most bouts involve non-lethal sparring to establish rights to mates, with the loser quickly giving way to its more powerful competitor. Unlike their African counterparts that use horns in tussles, Indian rhinos use their incisors to inflict bloody bite wounds.
