Thursday Throw Down: Battling ostriches get fight broken up by elephant

Travel adventurers Bob Scott and his family came across a scene at Tarangire in Tanzania in 2011 when they found two ostriches battling it out.

The video shot shows two large ostriches scrapping in the long grass. They kick, peck and rush towards each other.

Over the video, Bob suggested that the ostriches were probably fighting over a girl.

It’s always about girls.”

Then as the ostriches run through the grass, an elephant comes into view and the ostriches are startled and begin running towards the elephant who then gives chase to the fighting feathered pair.
