The giraffe was only due a few days later, so no one from the zoo staff actually expected the moment to come as early as it did. But fortunately someone who was lucky enough to witness the event when it happened managed to record it as it all unfolded.

And once the baby makes his entrance into the world, mom’s powerful instincts start to kick in and she assumes her role as a care provider with the kind of love and care only a mom can offer. Thankfully, the baby was perfectly healthy so the zoo keepers didn’t have to intervene. The allowed the new mom and her baby to spend time bonding and enjoying each other’s precious company.
