Lynn Sherr loves giraffes. She had a series about them called Tall Blondes. Most people don't know that male giraffes fight.

While filming giraffes at GIRAFFE MANOR in Kenya....I accidentally was hit in the head by a giraffe as it swung its head toward me.

I can tell you that I not only saw those proverbial STARS.....but I needed to sit down!

These are powerful animals....and, although it HURT....I was greatful for the experience.

(Well....sort of.)

Cool, sort of, lol. I had read somewhere that giraffes fight using their necks. What a sight it must be.

@ Pam W. Not many people could say "I was hit in the head by a giraffe and I was grateful for the experience".
