The giraffe was only expected a few days later, so no one on the zoo staff anticipated it to happen as soon as it did. But someone who was there and lucky enough to see it happen was able to record it on video as it happened.

Fortunately, the baby was totally healthy, and the zookeepers did not need to interfere. The new mom and her newborn were able to spend time connecting and enjoying each other’s wonderful company.
