Baby Giraffe Born Live on EarthCam from Greenville Zoo (VIDEO)
The birth of a baby giraffe at the Greenville Zoo in Greenville, South Carolina was broadcast live on the Internet Tuesday morning.
Masai giraffe parents Autumn and Walter welcomed their newest calf into the world from inside a barn stall.
Like that intense birthing of a baby elephant that recently went viral (again), this was very graphic as well.
Hundreds of thousands of viewers watched this giraffe birth live online with EarthCam at the Greenville Zoo in Greenville, South Carolina. Autumn, a 9 year old Masai giraffe, gave birth to the healthy calf at 6:15 a.m. on February 2, 2016.
“The birth went off without a hitch and the Greenville Zoo was once again able to share this special event with EarthCam viewers around the world. We hope that this exposure will help people connect with giraffes, want to learn more about them and help us support giraffe conservation efforts in the wild and in accredited zoos across the nation,” said Jeff Bullock, Greenville Zoo Director.
