Have You Ever Witnessed a Giraffe Birth? Now Is Your Chance!

This was captured at the Memphis Zoo and it shows the whole birth of a baby giraffe! The mom’s name is Sarabi and good news is the baby was so healthy, it stood right away and started nursing in less than an hour. A very successful birth! And what a moment to witness!

    That poor mother. How unnatural for her with all the noise and attention in a sand pit.

    i think this is terrible. That poor Giraffe and all These People around watching. I believe that animals are smart and i am sure the Giraffe wasn´t comfortable in this Situation. Locked up in a cage, no gras, no place where she could have went to give birth in peace. Horrible!

    This is awful. Why are the zoo keepers allowing an audience? All mammals seek a quiet and safe place to labour. You’d think for a zoo in a developed nation there’d be only vets and closest handlers around her at this time in a comfortable environment. But it’s all about the dollar hey? Just reinforces my loathing of “show-park” zoos.

    A beautiful sight. Only God could create the wonderment of birth. People this is an animal that doesn’t expect a comfortable bed to give birth on. Humans are spoiled. This is natural for an animal.

    At first the mother seemed uninvolved but when she saw her baby begin to function, she warmed up to the idea. It certainly seemed a lot easier for her than for human mothers.
