Giraffe... with two spoons

Two lionesses (Panthera leo) feeding on a dead giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis). An adult giraffe will feed the entire pride of lions for days... whilst there is good meat left in the body, the pride will just linger around, eating and sleeping, and they will only go away to drink.

Dos leonas (Panthera leo) alimentándose de una jirafa (Giraffa camelopardalis). Una jirafa adulta alimentará a la familia entera de leones durante días. Mientras haya buena carne en el cuerpo, la familia de leones no se moverá del sitio, comiendo y durmiendo, alejándose sólamente para beber.
