Standing tall – two Rothschild’s giraffes have been born at West Midland Safari Park.
The unnamed newborns are already 6ft tall and are the first successes of a breeding programme, which was put in place at the attraction, near Bewdley, three years ago.
The first new arrival was on August 9 while the second was on September 4. The news has boosted world-wide conservation efforts.
The CCTV footage shows footage of the yet-to-be-named female calf who was born at at around 10:53pm on September 4 after her mother, Akacia, went into labour at 8:15pm.
You can see two other giraffes in the video who are Strider, a non-paternal male - a calming influence on the others, and Bwindi, the five year old giraffe who is mother to the male calf born on 9 August.
Rothschild's giraffes are a rare species officially listed as endangered.
