The following pictures are of a cockfight in Honduras. The cockfight is part of the cultural heritage of Central America, and the depth of the ritual is pretty extensive. What is interesting is that the cockfight seems to be very similar all over the world. Clifford Geertz wrote extensively about cockfights in Bali, and they seem very much the same as what I observed in Honduras.
