Giraffe behavior is always interesting due to their unusual size. I couldn’t believe the “theatrics” watching one bend down to drink.

Spot on Vin. It’s fascinating to see how agile such big animals can be.

Josh, great video🤗 – you caught in action!

Thank you Joan, but all the videography credit goes to my guest Sabrina Davis.

Wow! We often see lions, leopards mating but a pair of giraffes- rarely! How fortunate you all were to witness this mating albeit, quite brief!

The term “in a blink” is very appropriate in this giraffe mating moment! I understand the sightings are very rare and thanks to Sabrina Davis, you have the completed visual. The only other image I’ve seen was from Tony Goldman of a mount only captured in one of his bi-annual visits to Londolozi. Glad all were able to see it. Thankfully you didn’t have to wait 36 years like Jerry did!! Lol…
