Two young male Thornicroft's giraffes practicing their necking behaviour in the Luangwa Valley, Zambia. They did a lot of shoving of butts, just fooling around, but necking is serious stuff when it's done for real. And I have experienced it up close as a zookeeper, a sound and experience I will never forget.
