It's scary to watch. I wonder if they ever do permanent damage?

How very interesting since a giraffe is always portrayed as such a peaceful animal.

And I hadn't realized those necks were so durable. Wow!

One seem to strike at the body while the othe hit the neck. I wonder which blow does more damage?

Speak softly, carry a GINORMOUS NECK! Holy schnikies, that was scary.

Well Zelly, the guy throwing the body shots won.

The video made me wonder if we've had the cause behind the giraffe's neck length all wrong. Maybe it became so long by giving those possessing it a more potent weapon to win access to the females.
