Gerald and Lee Durrell report on aggression in the animal world. "In the Trobriand Islands of new Guinea, warriors have ritualized their battles into cricket matches. In our societies, 'competition' is encouraged in every walk of life, but are we innately aggressive? Are the other animals? Many insects have perfected elaborate systems of warfare, from the remarkable sting-less bees of Panama to the 'slavemaker' ants of Dorset and the battling termites of Kenya. Many animals, however, do avoid open warfare by 'ritualizing' their aggression. Hippos have an elaborate system of threats, as do rhinos and the roaring red deer on the Isle of Rhum. Chimpanzees use competition and aggression to maintain harmony in their society, as do we."--Container
