Hail, you awesome human
Behold! The great planet presents to you: The Great Wild!
Superior in every way, the great wild entices you. Come, almighty human, the championship duel is about to start. Bring your cameras and your keen vision. This is a match for skilled, well muscled, genetically superior athletes. This is a match of competitive strength, for unrivaled dominance, for the preservation of the species. A match of such superiority, the dueling giants will battle fiercely for the opportunity to mate.
Come with your curiosity, your cameras and your wit. These fabulous specimens are all business and don’t get in their way. These are the giants of their species, the largest and the strongest of their beings. These are the majestic ones and they will fight for their rights. These are the great males of their kind, moose, elk, deer, sheep, they all rival each other in the fall. The mating season is well under way and these animals dominate the landscape around them.
This is survival of the fittest. The strong will dominate and win their chance to mate. This is the superiority of the species. A necessary dual to protect the genetic superiority of the herd. The wild calls. The challenge is on. The dual has started. The fight for dominance protects these animals. Their right to mate is an essential one. It weeds out the week and the inferior and protects the strong and agile ones. The biggest, the toughest, the strongest and the most agile, these are the specimens that are needed and these are the ones who survive.
Come awesome human. Slink into the back country with your camera and your wits. The challenge for survival is on. Don’t miss it.
