Viral This Video of a Giraffe Turning the Tables on a Lion Is Spectacular
— BBC One (@BBCOne) November 27, 2016
We can't stop watching this clip showing an outnumbered and desperate giraffe turning the tables on a pride of lions.
The jaw-dropping moment aired over the weekend on BBC's "Planet Earth II," a nature docu-series narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
The episode focused on deserts, including in the southwestern African nation of Namibia. The Daily Mail explained that a pride of lionesses were on a three-day hunt, desperate for a meal in the NamibRand desert when they spotted a giraffe near a dry riverbed.
It didn't look good for the giraffe, as it ran straight toward a lion waiting to strike.
The lion jumped at the much-larger animal's neck, but instead the giraffe plowed right over its attacker and stomped on the lion a few times before making an unlikely escape.
The amazing video has gone viral on social media and thrilled viewers who watched the U.K. program.
The show has reportedly been a ratings hit a decade after the debut season.
