Description

These two male giraffe were actually fighting .... it was quite amazing to watch - they would draw their long necks right back and swing at each other with all they had ... the noise when they connected was incredible. I know the lighting isn't great here but I had never seen giraffe fighting before and just wanted to share this image.
