"He barks and lunges in chase. She dodges and shrieks for backup. That's what can happen when female geladas flirt a little. This was an unusually violent pursuit. 'She strayed too close to a bachelor group,' says [biologist Chadden] Hunter. 'But I was shocked to see such a ferocious display by her mate.' Tables will turn on the chaser when other females???screeching spitfires gnashing their teeth and waving their nails???come to rescue one of their own. 'He'll wish he'd never started it,' says photographer [Michael K.] Nichols. 'The females will really go at him.'"
