I'll go with the Ramoceros here. The turkey doesn't seem to have any weapons other than brute force, and the Ramoceros seems to out-match it there.

(I doubt pecking will be very effective :lol: )

But surely not so powerful that they can just shrug off a better-built animal that's double their weight?

9 kilos is that decisive? I dunno. The turkey can fly and slash at the pronghorn to make up for lower speed and size.

Well, when 9 kilos is almost the entire weight of the lighter participant, it'd be a significant advantage. Maybe not decisive, but still a major edge. Especially considering the Ramoceros isn't exactly bulky - so, not much of its 20kg will be dead weight.

And, yeah, the turkey could certainly kick, and use the spikes on the back of its legs as a weapon. I'm not sure how powerful its kicks are, though (its legs don't look particularly muscular, but I am guessing it has quite a bit of leg muscle further up). I'm guessing the Ramoceros could easily counter with kicks of its own, though.
