Baby giraffes don’t have the luxury of being carried from birth until they are bigger like human babies, they have to stand up and get walking very soon after birth.

Watch this adorable video as this baby giraffe takes it’s first wobbly steps with encouragement from Mum.

How old were your kids when they took their first steps?

  • Baby animals are just the cutest. Any babies really are so gorgeous


  • Great video – hate to think what our children would get up to if they walked so early.


  • How adorable. My youngest was walking by the age of 10 months but he never crawled.


  • My son was 1, or thereabout when he started walking. There’s no stopping them once they can walk!!!


  • How cute. My little one was 14 months when she took her first steps.


  • Great video.


  • How sweet. My children adored watching this video.


  • Very magical when first steps are captured. My kids all walked at different times starting from 11 months till 16mobtgs. My daughter walked earlier than her three brothers.


  • Poor baby !!!! he/she went towards its Mum to suckle and she stepped away.
    One of ours startged walking arounbd holding on to furniture when she was about 9 months old. We had to encourage her to crawl as it strengthens back and other muscles before you walk.


  • I love baby giraffes, it’s amazing that they have to take their first steps so quickly after birth!
