Giraffe Birth


One of my plurkfiends posted something that I had to share it. The link below will show you a video of the birth of a baby giraffe, which is fascinating. They didn't know that the mother giraffe was pregnant, so it came as a surprise to the staff.

Beccy, you're a mum, how can you be squeamish?

That was really interesting - thanks for sharing! I can't wait to show my kids when they get home from school.

Beccy, I'm a bit squeamish too but it's not so bad... once the lanky guy is out it's really cute. :o)

I love it...that is so sweet. That place is actually about an hour away from me and I have always wanted to visit, but it is a bit pricey. thanks for sharing.

Beckie hope your children found it interesting. Wish Beccy had shown it to hers; it's educational.

John both beccy and sam are squeamish not a bit like me.

Alison I would love a visit there.

Virginia glad you're passing it on.

Karmyn I was willing the baby to stand up. It looked such an effort!

this was wonderful. I loved how they kept licking it and nudging it to move. I wonder what they do in the wild if there is a predator lurking.

Pamela I guess the adults would rally round and try to protect it in the wild. I was watching an elephant programme recently where they did that, so maybe giraffe's are the same.
