According to a photographer- they were  competing over dominance, females, and territory. One of them had a different color because of a bath in red mud.

“Bulls frequently measure one other’s capabilities through sparring or play-fi.g..h..ting,” he explained. These two males were most likely from different herds.

“It was obvious they had spent the day in different places since their colors were varied.

“The dark-colored elephant had bathed in red mud, which elephants do to protect their skin from the sun, insects, and parasites.

“It was a fun scene to document.

“I enjoy seeing nature in action and animals behaving naturally, so I was delighted to observe this.”
