The Tortoise Fight – Posberg

The Tortoise Fight

We came across these two adversaries having a fight for domination, while hiking in the Posberg Private Nature Reserve. The dominant tortoise turned the loser on to his back and then bit at his feet every time he put them out of his shell to try to right himself. We watched them for about ten minutes while the winner watched over the one on it’s back. Eventually we did intervene and helped to poor guy, who scurried away quickly in to the undergrowth.
