No. 1 John D. Rockefeller (1839 - 1937)
Fortune: $323.4 billion Standard Oil
You have to wonder how John D. Rockefeller would fare as a major player in Big Oil today. After all, he founded Standard Oil in 1870, and it wasn’t long before he dominated the industry.

From a legacy standpoint, however, he’s best remembered for his unfathomable wealth. Even today, the name connotes “money.”

Showing one’s teeth doesn’t always mean they’re smiling for the camera. Animals tend to expose their teeth especially when it comes to territory and lack of food sources.

Taking close-up pictures like these can be highly risky, as animals don’t like any hindrance during their combats. For whatever reasons they may be fighting, this can injure the person or animal coming between them. Today we have come up with some dazzling shutterbug shots to inspire you and take you on a walk with us through the wild side. Enjoy with us some spectacular animal fighting moments!
