Why the long neck? Perfectly captured moment shows two giraffes turning into one
PEEK-A-BOO! This giraffe must have one long neck to be able to poke it’s head out of the bush in which his body is submerged.
But the comical moment is not all it seems, but rather a perfectly timed coincidence, as head and body don’t belong to the same giraffe.
Photographer Rudi Hulshof was lucky enough to capture the incredible moment at Royal Maleware Lodge, South Africa.
The nature guide, 38, was leading guests on a wildlife photographic safari when he spotted the two giraffe bulls sparring.
One went into a bush, and stuck his head through the foliage. At the same time, the other bent forward through the other side, seemingly turning two into one.
Rudi said: “I am always ready to take photos, but this was a few seconds of chance being at the right place at the right time.
“Very happy that I had managed to capture the comical aspect of the situation, making it seem the head of one belonged to the body of the other.
“I have not, and do not anticipate seeing this again, as it is unusual for giraffe to be buried so deep in a bush that only the head protrudes.”
