        Impala Rut | Gorongosa Park: Rebirth of Paradise

        Learn about impala ruts in this clip from Gorongosa Park: Rebirth of Paradise. At the beginning of winter, the impala have gone into what is called the rut. As their testosterone levels go through the roof, the mature males go horn-to-horn in a fight for dominance. As intense as it looks, they rarely kill each other but the fighting can be fatal for another reason: they're distracted and Gorongosa's lions don't give a free pass for rutting.
