16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Roar of the Jungle

As me and my cousin were exploring the outskirts of Yala National Park - Sri Lanka, we experienced something extraordinary: we got stuck in the centre of a war between the primates (Tufted gray langur (Semnopithecus priam)). Branches falling thunderously, deafening screeching and chattering, and a lot of commotion, both groups were fighting furiously, baring their teeth and gnarling to establish their dominance in the battle.
