Are giraffes more likely to be struck by lightning?

According to a paper published in 2011 by one of the foremost experts on lightning safety, Chandima Gomes, "animals with a large separation between their front and back feet... are vulnerable to receive lightning injuries due to the dangerous potential differences that may built up between these feet, in the event of nearby lightning." The paper went on to say that taller animals like giraffes and elephants could be more susceptible to "side flashes," where lightning rebounds after striking a nearby tree.

Giraffes being long and tall, those two points seem to indicate that they’re more likely to be struck, but because the occurrence of lightning striking an animal is so rare, there is not enough numerical evidence to support the theory. According to Julian Fennessy, a Namibia-based conservationist and chair of the International Giraffe Working Group, "if you're in the wrong place at the wrong time you're susceptible—it's not that giraffes stand out like lightning rods."

What are the adaptations of a giraffe?

A Giraffe's Adaptations

A giraffe's neck, being a giraffe's most prominent adaptation, allows the herbivore to spot prey and predators from a higher view and to eat the leaves on tall trees, since trees compete each other in height for the most sunlight for photosynthesis.

A giraffe's neck qualifies as its particular adaptation also because it has 7 bones like that of the human's, meaning that a giraffe's neck is definitely particularly designed to do what a human neck (or that of most other species) can't do.

Also, a giraffe's yellow, brown-spotted fur aids its camouflage in the shadows of yellow places like the savannah or sandy tundra.

One adaptation the giraffe has is its long neck. Other animals like zebras eat off the lower branches of trees so giraffes have developed longer necks so there is no competition for food. The giraffe gets the top, while other herbivores get the lower leaves.

There is a sponge at the base of a giraffe's skull that absorbs and re-routes the blood that rushes down its neck when it bends down to drink, eat, etc.

Giraffes also have long, rough tongues which they can use to grasp leaves for eating.

excellent vision, long/strong tongue, communication, and their large/tall bodies. Their long legs help them escape from predators.

Some adaptations are behavioral: Giraffes drink water by gulping-drinking a lot of water quickly. They bend their long necks toward the water and gulp up the water before a leopard or hyena has a chance to attack them. Giraffes can drink up to 10 gallons (45 liters) of water in one drinking session.

The Giraffe has many adaptations to help it survive and thrive in the harsh African conditions. The tail of the Giraffe is an adaptation the animal has to swat flies, and other biting pest off of its body.

Who Would Win

Who would win in a fight a giraffe or a rhino?

I would think the giraffe would win. Even though the rhino is powerful, it is not very fast. For a lion, getting kicked by a full grown giraffe is usually fatal, and despite the rhino's protective coating, the giraffe would see it, and be ready for attack.
