The Vixen on the right was putting the Kit on the left in it's proper place. Interesting, they made a ton of noise but I never saw teeth come into contact.

Lovely action capture, Terry and it looks like the vixen's word is law - backed up by her forepaws!

Cool action captured! Nice symmetry with the open mouths.

Fabulous! Nicely done Terry. Yeah, have seen them doing this.. Make an awful amount of noise, and huge amount of movement, but rarely any actual blood... sort of an orchestrated, ritualised process, unlike some other larger predators that do not hesitate to draw blood.
Make your life spectacular!

Thank you Carol,
It erupted rather quickly and was quite noisy.

Thank you and I appreciate you noticing the symmetry which is why I chose this image over
few others in the series.

You are spot on David, they were loud and raucous but not one image shows a bite or
tooth contact. Thank you.
