Hi Again Everybody,
What we have here in the video clip is two male giraffes fighting for dominance.
This is what happens when you get one old giraffe, and one younger giraffe where the younger of the two giraffes feels he needs to fight the older to get control of the females and then he is able to sow his seeds thereby been able to advance his bloodline.
The video above shows you just how vicious it can become, with the actual noice of the horns hitting bones, and actually braking some of them. everybody visualises a giraffe to be a placid animal, that just forages on trees, and mates with females. It is not until you see something a viscous as the above that you get to know that giraffes can be come so violent in the defence of their females. Unfortunately the younger of the two giraffes dies in this video, as the blows to his body are all on target, and hurt hime immensely, that he just cannot continue, and falls to the ground dead. Nature is sometimes a ver brutal thing, but this is one of the ways, where the saying that the "Strongest Shall Survive". It is not uncommon the see giraffes fighting while on one of our Kruger Park Safaris, however seen them fight to the death is not a very common sight.
