All-Out Battle

I watched two big males fighting over this small three-legged turtle this morning. Well, it wasn't exactly Fight Club. The smaller male would swim up to the bigger one until they bumped shells. Then they would lightly nip each other on the neck and the smaller one would casually swim away. Most of the time the smaller one would try to burrow under the larger one, I guess it was trying to dislodge it from it's resting place. All in all a very laid-back Maui kind of conflict.
