Caught this headline in my rss reader from the BBC:

'Epic humpback whale battle filmed'

Being male and enjoying animal on animal violence, I immediately clicked onto the article to read about this EPIC battle and view the video:

A BBC natural history crew has filmed the "humpback whale heat run", where 15m long, 40 tonne male whales fight it out to mate with even larger females. During the first complete sequence of this behaviour ever captured, the male humpbacks swim at high speed behind the female, violently jostling for access. The collisions between the males can be violent enough to kill. The footage was recorded for the BBC natural history series Life.

I have to tell you though, I was a little disappointed...
