Top 10 Photographs of Animals Fighting Animals

November 21, 2012  |  Animals, Nature

While it may seem that humans are the most violent animal on the planet, and we probably are, there is no shortage of animosity and violence in the animal kingdom. In fact, Mother Nature is Don King of the animal kingdom, promoting animals fights daily and death matches between species nightly. Some of the better photos of animals fighting animals can be found on this page. Possibly these aren’t the top 10 best photographs of animals fighting each other, but you would be hard pressed to find a better collection of animals attacking, fighting and trying to eat each other on the Web. If you do find some additional photos of animals fighting please let us know in the comments. Until then take a gander at these pictures of birds (hawks, eagles, sparrows), squirrels, rabbits, foxes, wolves, lions, tigers and bears, oh my, fighting each other, biting each other and clawing for their very lives.
