Roy Mangersnes - Clash of Titans


I just returned from a most successful week in the mountains working with one of my favorite mammals, the Musk Ox. The tremendous display of strength that are shown two bulls, weighing up to 400kg, meet head to head at speeds about 40k/h is printed in my mind. The sound of the crashing skulls are the only sound to ring through the howling winds.

    I happened to see BBC 'Frozen planet' series (NOT recommended to buy though) lately and these guys were part of it. I was absolutely in awe how they fought and you have nailed it here.
