This is the moment a baby giraffe came face to face with a young rabbit.

The wild bunny had snuck into the giraffe enclosure at Cincinnati Zoo And Botanical Garden when baby Fennessy stumbled across the intruder.

In a video posted to Twitter, Fenn – who was born at the zoo in June – can be seen inquisitively checking out the newcomer.

And as the rabbit scarpers, Fenn does a little bunnyhop of his own.
