Wildlife Around the World - Buffy Redsecker

Grappling Grevys

Samburu National Park in Kenya is one of the last places in the world where one can see Grevy's Zebra in the wild. We searched for these elusive beasts for 3 days and finally found a small bachelor herd. These two were practice fighting, and as we watched they moved closer and closer to our vehicle. This shot was taken during the wrestling match part of the fight, where they were taking turns climbing on each other. The largest species of Zebra, the Grevy is poached for it's magnificent skin, and is losing habitat to human encroachment at a rapid rate. It is estimated that only 1500 - 2000 Grevys remain in the wild.
