Did you know …. giraffes are around six feet tall at birth and grow at a rate of about one inch a day? After weaning the mother moves the calf to areas with low branches so that it can learn to eat vegetation. This photo is of a new giraffe baby drinking from it’s mommy, we could see the umbilical cord and the ranger guessed it to be less than a month old. Treat. Londolozi Game Reserve.
