COMMON NAME
Giraffe
SCIENTIFIC NAME
Giraffa camelopardalis
(Linnaeus,1758)
Although Giraffes are one of the favorite prey of Lion, very often the predator will come off second best, as Giraffe can deliver devastating blows with their forelegs.
Fighting amongst Giraffe bulls is not uncommon, and is limited to an alternate strike at each other with their heads.

The picture was taken near Satara Camp in the  Kruger National Park
