Girrafes at Lake Nakuru National Park, Kenya, Africa.

Taken with Canon SLR. Scanned Photo.

Female giraffes give birth standing up. Their young endure a rather rude welcome into the world by falling more than 5 feet (1.5 meters) to the ground at birth. These infants can stand in half an hour and run with their mothers an incredible ten hours after birth.

    G’day Dean – thanks for the heads-up on giraffes and their birthing habits. I notice the little birds on them and I believe they keep little nasties in check on these and other animals. Could this be the origins of “nit picking”? Excellent capture and processing.

  • haha you could be right there george – maybe thats whats the kids with lice need :) im assuming their ox peckers. i have seen plenty of hippo and buffalo with them but not really giraffes. i guess any large mammal they find. thanks a bunch george, felt like doing some africa today as its been a while !
