Do all animals with horns fight for breeding rights?

    Among the deer, sheep, rhinos, and other mammals with horns, they are generally used in mating. But many also serve a variety of other purposes; rhino horns are important for defense and aiding in digging up food. The horns of caribou are also grown by females, and the females actually keep them longer and use them to defend themselves and their calves. Some lizards, like the thorny devil and horned lizards, have horns over their heads and bodies used primarily in defense. So while these horns are often tied to breeding rituals in many species, they are not necessarily so and they also serve a variety of other important functions.
