It is pertinent to mention that giraffes are one of the main prey of the lions but it does not mean they are successful in hunting them every day. After all, not every day is Sunday.
The cats hunt down deers and other mammals. This is because of needing to grab hold of its throats before killing it. They have to take on large animals when their attacks don’t go as planned.
Giraffes are one of them.
They can be young, ill or bearing a child. However, they can use their strong survival instinct to give the “King of the Jungle” a strong run for their money. This video is clear proof of it.
