A pack of hungry lions decided to hunt giraffes for food. However, their prey fights back very fiercely with powerful kicks. After a few minutes of fighting, the “lords of the grasslands” tried to hold on to their prey but were all beaten up by the giraffes.
The short clip is part of the incident, the giraffe fiercely protested but it is unclear what the final outcome will be?
The giraffe (scientific name Giraffa) is one of the herbivorous mammals, belonging to the order of even-toed clogs. They are the tallest animals on land, surpassing elephants and also the largest ruminants.
Male deer can reach a height of 4.8 to 5.5 meters and weigh up to 1,300 kg. The record for the measured height of a giraffe is 5.87 meters.
The most special feature of this species is its extremely long neck, which can reach over 2 meters. The neck alone accounts for 52-54% of the giraffe’s spine length, compared with 27-33% in similar large ungulates.
The long neck is both a tool for feeding and a weapon of self-defense for deer because it allows them to observe enemies from a distance.
Although they have large, bulky bodies and long necks, they can run at quite high speeds when chased by predators.
According to records, the giraffe’s gallop speed can reach 55 km/h. That is, if they are short distances, they can catch up with racehorses.
