Lion pride try to slay a full-grown giraffe

January 29, 2019 - A pride of lions stalks its prey. Instead of going for easier prey like a gazelle, this pride ambitiously took on an adult giraffe. An adult giraffe can stand up to 5.8 metres tall and weigh up to 1,270 kilograms. Young giraffes are more likely to fall prey to lion attacks, but as they grow they become more difficult to take down. Witnesses say the giraffe was able to shake the lions off.
