You've heard of a Phoenix from the flames - well here's something far more spectacular.

A new picture appears to show the moment a fiery giraffe bursts out of a oven.

It was taken at the Finca Santa Catalinain, Cundinamarca in Colombia on New Year's Eve when photographer Christian Turri spottted the bizarre animal image.

"We were preparing the outside oven for a turkey when it just came out," Turri told The Huffington Post UK.

"It was only there for a second but I managed to get a picture."
