Watch April the Giraffe give birth live on YouTube

For all who love our furry, scaly, slimy and feathery friends because where would we be without them?

Watch April the Giraffe give birth live on YouTube

Postby Butterfield on Tue Mar 14, 2017 2:35 am

My mum was looking at this the other day on her iPad. I wondered why she was watching a video of a giraffe, that I then found out was pregnant and about to give birth live for the world to see.

It still hasn't given birth though by the looks of things. Right now she's just standing there swishing her tail, and a song with autotune is playing. :sly:

I think it's in New York state somewhere.

If you click the video link you can see a host of delightful people commenting on it live. :happy:

The calf will weigh around 150lb and will be about 6' tall at birth.
The front hooves will come out first followed by the snout.

Mom will naturally raise the calf, with weaning could take between 6-10 months, maybe longer. We will not rush this process – it is just a documented range of captive weaning.

Once the calf is born, we will have a contest to name it. :excited:

Ziggy is more interesting to watch. And she's not about to lay an egg.


Or is she?
