"Nose to Nose!"
And This is the Way Eskimos Kiss!!!
The upper tusks grow up, out and around while the lower ones are short and sharp. These lower tusks are used for defense only and are not used in ritualized fighting. Warts protect the eyes and jaw during fighting rituals. These are pushing or boxing matches, tusk to tusk and forehead to forehead. One tries to strike the other in the head with the upper tusks and muzzle and to push him off balance. This fighting can often become violent and bloody.
