Looks like April the Giraffe is giving birth now!


Recommended Posts

Leg sticking out


ETA: Both front legs are out now. I was a bit worried when there was only one. Also a substance -- whatever the giraffe's legs were encased in (I guess) fell to the floor, and she picked it up and ate it. It was a membrane,but certainly not 6' long!


Every so often she reaches back and licks those little legs.

Is anyone else getting nervous? She doesn't seem to be progressing. When goats or sheep give birth, it's just a matter of a few minutes (at most) from the time the hooves appear until the baby is out. I realize she's neither goat nor sheep, but still...She's been like this for an hour!
