This Video Of A New Born Giraffe In Dubai Is The Cutest Thing You Will See Today

Animal lovers this one is for you


Between all the depressing things happening in this world, there are some things that just make us smile. This video is one of them.

The crown prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, put a video of a baby giraffe (aka calf) on his Instagram page. It first shows the calf nursing and then making its way behind the other giraffes on the sand. Its movements are still pretty wobbly but it's adorable.

A little lesson in zoology: calves generally stand and walk about an hour after they're born. Within a week they begin exploring vegetation, but they nurse until they're around six to nine months of age.
