Two Bulls

Print Description

Once they leave the family adolescent bulls form loose associations with other bulls.  These so called bull groups can number as few as two individuals, but average 2 to 15.  Occasionally they can number about thirty five but have been known to number over one hundred bulls.  During their retirement phases, when they are not sexually active, they spend time with other bulls – often with one or more regular companions.  It is difficult to image that later in life these two bulls, so seemingly affectionate now, could fight to the death over a female in estrous.
