The giraffe calf was spotted with its long black ‘hair’ blowing in the wind as it ran alongside its mother.

At one point the giraffe even looked like it had a Mohican when a gust a wind caused its hair to stand on end.

But while the young calf’s hair could be mistaken for that of a young Mick Jagger, its bizarre barnet is actually the result of a perfectly timed photo.

What appears to be the young calf’s tresses is actually its mother’s tail blowing above its head as they ran.

The funny images were captured by photographer Paolo Meroni near Kruger National Park in South Africa.

Paolo, 20, from Italy said: “I was on holiday with friends when we saw this mum and baby giraffe.

“I was on a jeep and the giraffes crossed the road about 40 to 50 meters from us, so I took the photos.

“I just shot pictures following the giraffes as they moved.

“The perspective of the photo makes it seem that baby giraffe has hair , which is actually the tail of his mother.
