So pleased you managed to get a look at Autumn Lai and thats a great picture Very Happy
I have just checked and she is not in her stall, so she must be having a wander outside, although I cant see her, I bet she is still pregnant. I will have a check again later, but for now I am going to do an Autumn and getsome tea Very Happy

Totaly confused both stalls are empty, and have been cleaned out. Checked on Earthcam FB Page. One comment 18Hrs ago was Autumns in labour, and aonther 16hrs ago was that the stalls were empty, But I checked the cam in between those times, and everything was normal scratch

Wot . . . . . still no baby No Very disappointed we haven't seen the pitter patter of 4 long legs !!! Still, Autumn looks healthy and still very pregnant, we'll just have to wait a bit longer.

Managed to capture her just now . . . . . eating of course Very Happy but for some reason I can't post any pictures on here scratch Not sure if it's just this thread or in general, will try elsewhere . . . .

Autumn has had her baby Giraffe Giraffe I m not sure when, I just looked in and first all I could see was Autumns legs in the top left hand side of the stall, then I spotted a little blur in the bottom right and it was a baby Giraffe on a bed of straw, the picture is blurry as the cam is really focused on Autumns legs but she has had her baby at long last cheers
For some reason my picture wont upload but believe me Autumn has had her calf and I am sure someone will get another picture today, shame I couldnt post one for you to see but i'm just pleased at long last we have a baby Giraffe to watch bounce

Whoop whoop, great news

Thanks LW and WS for the pictures, video and info. Baby drops at 1.20 on your clip WS and I must admit I got a fright affraid as it didn't move and Autumn just stood and looked at it appearing not to know what to do with the baby !!! All appears well though by the further videos you have posted WS cheers

Just tried the cam just now and no pictures No

Post  littlewid on Tue Oct 23, 2012 5:45 pm

Great videos and Pic WS, lovely to see the birth bounce I had a feeling when I looked in this morning the calf wasnt very old, I had a feeling it had just been born as it was still lying on the floor but then it started moving and got up. The cam was a bit blurry on it but its clear to see and the calf and Autumn were having a nuzzle. Autumn was very calm giving birth but it did make me smile afterwards when she was staring at it as if, what the hells that and also the giraffe on the other side was doing the same. Thanks again for the clips WS I will see if i can now post the pics from this morning when she was 40 mins old.
Here the calf was still a blob on the floor at 5.30am

Just lifting her head up but still unable to stand about 5.45 am

Just about 6am and she was nearly on her feet with the encourgement of Autumn

Apologies for the bad pictures but that was the quality of the cam this morning but that was the start of the little calfs life.....then I had to get to work which was a shame.

I'm sorry to say Guys there seems to be a problem. Autumn is not letting the little one feed. She just keeps walking round in circles, and wont let her suckle, every time it gets close she moves away. I was worried about this, this morning, but decided not to saying anything, as I thought it may resolve itself.
Just to show whats going on


They have shut the doors to try to keep Autumn closer to the baby, but it's not working up till now

That is really sad to watch. I said in my earlier post that Autumn looked at the calf as if to say what the hells that, she seemed totaly stunned as to how the calf got in there and that clip just shows she is not sure what to do or even understands the calf is hers, lets hope things change and soon.
At the moment the calf is sitting down on it's own and I cant see Autumn.

Logged on to Autumns cam and She's suckling cheers cheers
Dont know how long for, but Autumn stood while the little one fed. It was licking its lips after the feed


Now sitting down content


I think the babys full she's sat down there for the last twenty mins, and not moved. I think everything will be OK now, especialy if you watch this video. Autumn has'nt really bothered with her before, but you can see the difference here
