Auckland s new baby giraffe

A couple of weeks ago, the team at the giraffe enclosure at Auckland Zoo were able to witness the birth of a calf and watch it go from being delivered, to walking within the space of 30 minutes.

Nat Sullivan, Pridelands team leader, was there when mother Rukiya gave birth.
