A few lucky people who went to the Memphis Zoo in Tennessee got to see something that probably won’t ever happen again. They watched a female giraffe have her first baby, and the whole thing was caught on video.
The giraffe wasn’t due to give birth for a few more days, so no one on the zoo staff really thought it would happen so soon. But someone lucky enough to be there at the event’s time could record it as it happened.
In the scary video, you can see the mother looking for the best place to give birth. As soon as the baby comes into the world, the mom’s strong instincts take over, and she starts caring for him with love and care that only a mom can give. The baby was healthy, so the zookeepers didn’t have to do anything to help. The new mom and her baby were able to spend time together and get to know each other better.
