Elephants, especially young males, test one another's strength by placing their trunks on one another's heads and pushing their opponent down and back. Sparring can range from gentle and sensuous pushing, trunk-twining in a playful or greeting context, to more boisterous shoving to very rough and aggressive pushing, tusking and even ramming. Sparring typically occurs between males, less frequently between a male and female and rarely between two females. Sparring helps them learn their own strength, build knowledge and develop the skill set they will need as mature males.
