    I love Giraffes, and I understand she is about to give birth, but I do not like how little space that poor Giraffe currently has.

    Taking the advice of my Lamaze teacher - walk, walk walk!

    She keeps wondering in and out of the camera. :)

    I just watched her walk out of one of the doors (bottom left door) and then back in!

    She's trying to get some sleep...lying down, keeps resting her head/neck along her body but looks uncomfortable.

    Good luck, mama!

    Very cool! She is on the ground, legs tucked under and her head up. She seems uncomfortable at times.

    Someone is controlling the camera. They just zoomed in on her ahem "lady bits". I wonder if something is happening.

    If you roll the button on your mouse, you can zoom in on the pic, too.

    Do I have to download the app to see it, or is what is showing the actual live webcam?

    Are you confusing the divider in the middle as the extent of her stall, as I did? I also thought it was small until I saw her walk through the "wall" to the other side. :laughing: It appears her food is on the left, so she sticks to that side most of the time I've watched.

    How cute is she? Too bad my DD already went to sleep. She loves giraffes.

    I didn't know giraffes lie down. I thought there was an issue with their internal organs like horses and such. I know all animals seem to lie down but it isn't supposed to be "good" for some, am I right about that??? Too much animal planet watching.

    I have seen videos of birth and they were all standing up. The poor baby just kinda flushed out with the birth fluids and landed on the floor. They were fine. Just looked kinda scarey. :scared:

    Oh yeah, anyone know what that bristle brush thing is on the divider? Looks like those things for cats to rub against.
