    Great #interaction image and interesting! What puzzles me,"target" looks young, sexually immature(small,short horns,born earlier same year).

    Do wildebeest males often in rutting time mistakenly make attempts to mount these young ones too?

    I don't think an adult bull would do that, but the one mounting here looks like only 18 months old.

    Thank you David for all this info! Young male's age explains a lot in here. I should have noticed unclosed horn gap at least, but was too

    excited about this find to notice that. Absolutely interesting to see also this kind of youngster behaviour right in front of camera 😃
