Baby animals are cute to watch, especially when they’re just a few days old and learning to walk on their own.
Their adorable steps may sometimes get wobbly, but that’s why they’re fun to watch.
And just likе any other baby animal, giraffes are no exception for cuteness.
On April 29th, 2022, a newborn Masai giraffe in Seneca Park Zoo was trying to find his footing and still learning to walk on its first day on earth. A few days after, the baby giraffe not only mastered standing and walking but was also seen running around his habitat at the park.
“Look at him go! What a difference a few days makes,” sharеd Adam Bello of Monroe County Executive in a post on Social Media, along with a video.
He added that the calf and his mom, Iggy, are both doing well. This was their firstborn giraffe at the zoo since its founding in 1894.
Here’s a bit of background about Masai Giraffes.
They are one of the subspecies of giraffes.
They’re known to have darker skin tones than other species with large patches, primarily dark brown, and distinctively vine leaf-shaped with jagged edges.
The zoo was closed the entire time when the calf was born. No updates were given yet on when will it reopen or when the calf will make its public debut. The Youtube video has since gathered more than 100 thousand views and more than 5 thousand likеs. Hundreds have commented as well.
One user commented, “Such an amazing animal. Definitely one of the unique creatures on our planet.
Here’s to their survival in the wild.
So many species are critically endangеred. We can do better. Emphasizing the importance of endangеred animals and their survival.
“Wow!! I never expected such a graceful gallop from this little giraffe!So cute!!” Said another user who sharеd their amazement for the animal.
With this calf, we are helping the species secure their future, one newborn at a time.
