This is the hilarious moment a lucky tourist gets a messy kiss from a giraffe as he plucks pellets from between his lips.

While visiting the Nairobi Giraffe Centre during a holiday in Kenya, Iain Williams was met with a lip smacking welcome.

Holding some food pellets in his mouth, the Surrey native held still as the massive mammal approached.

Flicking out its huge tongue, the giraffe seizes the food leaving Iain and others watching on in hysterics, before the amorous animal performs the trick again.

Iain said: “It was a very strange experience.

“I had expected it to be wet, but it was more like being kissed by a rough sponge.

“Unsurprisingly, this is the first time I’ve bene kissed by a giraffe.

“The kissing only went on for a minute or two.

“You had to hold a ‘giraffe treat’ in your mouth which it would take, but I was not expecting the full on kiss.”
