    A baby giraffe was born right while I was at the zoo today!

    I was in the San Diego Zoo only 90 feet from the giraffe enclosure when a crowd started gathering and cheering. My friend and I immediately headed over there to see what all the uproar was about, and I was to learn of the birth of a brand new baby giraffe.

    How much of a rare coincidence is that! I DO have pictures of the new infant and as soon as I download my camera, I'll post them to this thread and maybe the rest of the photos of the animals I took. (There were a lot of the forum members from this place in the monkey cage for some reason. Looked like a darn SSG convention. -I'll post those pictures too as soon as I label everyone :P )

    Was this ever an amazing day for sure!

    My wife and I have been to our local zoo at least 5 times in the last year. Never seen a birth of an animal before though, well at least not live.

    I'll bet that little giraffe came out like a long wet noodle.

    btw: San Diego Zoo is awesome, just don't get on the wrong side of the double-decker tour bus, or you'll need a giraffe neck to see the animals.

    I have a special sneak preview of the photos and evidence as to why Tycho was so interested:

    It's a blacked-out blur but I'm pretty sure it ruled.

    Yes! That's exactly it. The baby was sure to become some kind of a GENIUS GIRAFFE. It could stand up on its own within minutes of being born - how far advanced beyond humans is that? Human babies have to crawl before they can walk. This little (girl - actually) could RUN (albeit she was a bit wobbily on her feet still, and nearly fell over like a dozen times while we watched her).

    But she was way ahead of the curve by more than a neck. A neck! Get it?

    Giraffes are cool! Remember that the next time you see Geoffrey at Toys R Us!

    I saw a rhino giving birth at the zoo once, and Jim Carey came out.

    Wow, what a coincidence, I was sitting in the bathroom this morning (on my arse as well) and thought a baby hippo was being born.

    I am a baby hippo, and I was born earlier today.

    I'm only three-and-a-half hours old.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Every time I pull my pants down to use the bathroom it looks like a baby elephant is being born trunk first.
    Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!
