[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
these two hippos were having a royal battle in Masai Mara. Even though they were pushing and biting viciously they were careful not to use their teeth. There seem to be some kind of a rule so that they don't end up killing each other. I'm not sure if they were fighting for female or just having an exercise, but it went on for a good long time!

Hello Sitthivet

A great capture of this fierce battle.Looks like they are trying to see who has the biggest mouth.Great action shot,with good POV and DOF.The detail is very good.I like how you captured the churning and frothing water as well,shows good motion.TFS
