Some lucky people visiting the Memphis Zoo in Tennessee have had a unique moment that they will probably never forget. They saw a female giraffe giving birth to her first baby and it was all captured on video!
The giraffe would arrive only a few days later, so none of the zoo staff expected the moment to come this early. Fortunately though, someone lucky enough to witness the event when it happened managed to record it as it unfolded.
In the intense images you can see mom looking for the perfect place to give birth to her offspring. And once the baby is born, the mother’s strong instincts kick in and she takes on the role of her caregiver with the kind of love and care that only a mother can provide. Fortunately, the baby was perfectly healthy, so zookeepers didn’t have to intervene. This allowed the new mom and baby to spend time together and enjoy each other’s precious company.
Make sure you share this important moment with all your friends and family soon. View:
