Giraffe gives birth on camera at zoo in Denmark



Denmark’s Aalborg Zoo captured the moment a female giraffe calf was born on March 19, 2018. The video, posted to the zoo’s Facebook page, shows 18-year-old mother Caroline giving birth to the calf, named Siphiwe, followed by her first tentative steps until she could stand straight.

Caroline and her new-born are members of the Rothschild’s giraffes subspecies of giraffe, the zoo’s Facebook post detailed. Giraffes are classified as ‘vulnerable’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature due to the exploitation of their native habitat in Africa.
