Giraffe Birth Wows Onlookers

Many lucky guests and staff had a most amazing experience when a baby giraffe was born at Copenhagen Zoo on Friday September 8 at 12:25pm.

It's a highly experienced mother with seven successful births behind her, so officials felt confident in opening the barn and allowing curious guests to watch. Of course, there was always staff present to observe the animals' behavior and close the barn if they showed signs of stress - but it wasn't necessary at all! All maintained a respectful silence while excited children and adults had an experience of a lifetime.
