The Berrea in Monfragüe.
With the arrival of autumn and the first rains, the large male deer begin to descend from the mountains to court the females and perpetuate their species, then a struggle begins to monopolize the largest number of females to which to transmit their genes. With their constant barking from dawn to dusk they control their territory and their females and try to expel other rival males, if even so this is not enough they can start fights between the big males, in which the strongest will keep the harem of females, in this way only the strongest get to mate, natural selection in its pure state.
