    Default Giraffe calf born at Denmark's Aalborg Zoo


    Giraffe mother Jonna, a resident of Denmark's Aalborg Zoo, gave birth to a female calf on Feb. 11. (That's right; this baby isn't just new, it's brand spanking new!) Of course, Jonna lost no time in cleaning the calf, who looks little but actually measures somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 feet tall.
    Contrary to a popular notion, giraffes have the same number of neck vertebrae as humans do -- seven, if you're keeping score -- but each giraffe vertebra can measure 10 inches long or more. An adult giraffe's neck alone weighs approximately 600 pounds.
    More photos of mother and calf (who tries really hard to stand up, with interesting results) after the jump!

    You can make it, little giraffe!

    Well ... maybe you can't. But you sure did try hard.

    You'll be walking in no time, little buddy; we promise!

    Seems like it'd be painful to birth that!

    Seconded! It just begs to be turned into a macro too.
