Wacky Races - Giraffe pips Zebra in Longleat run around...by a long neck!<br />
<br />
A young giraffe and a zebra at Longleat Safari Park engaged in their own version of the wacky races - a clear signal spring is definitely on its way.<br />
<br />
The pair were spotted making the most of the sunshine as they hurtled around the Wiltshire wildlife attraction’s 60-acre reserve; much to the delight of visitors who witnessed their high jinks.<br />
<br />
Fifteen month old Rothschild male giraffe, Rudy, and male Grant’s zebra, Iebe, competed in the frantic runabout as the other members of their herds looked on with bemusement.<br />
<br />
“It was quite a sight to see them galloping across the reserve,” said keeper Ian Turner, who captured their antics on camera.
