  I beleive this behavior has been linked to intraspecific non-harming
combat between males (akin to strutting) and/or to social-sexual displays
between males, likening some to the rather not-uncommon same-sex courting
behaviors seen in animals today.

  Little steps are often the hardest to take.  We are too used to making leaps 
in the face of adversity, that a simple skip is so hard to do.  We should all 
learn to walk soft, walk small, see the world around us rather than zoom by it.
