What is aggression and competition?
Competition is the conflict between organisms for a limited essential resource or a mate.
Four young West Lowland male gorillas fight over a tomato.
This is a scene normally reserved for wildlife documentaries and blockbuster films, but at Devon Zoo three adult male gorillas were captured in an astonishing display of animal instinct while they fought over a tomato for breakfast. The gorillas started kicking and hitting one another with their fangs in complete view, these hungry males stood upright as they carried out their hungry scuffle to the amazement of visitors.
