As the title of one of the more popular reality shows in Hungary goes, this is the Real World! At the Budapest Zoo the giraffe house is kept under 24/7 camera surveillance and last weekend the birth of a giraffe baby was captured on camera for posterity.
It’s a slight pity it all happened during the night so it was recorded in night vision mode, but it is undoubtedly something very special indeed to see this miracle from the Savanna.
Part of the recording was edited using time-lapse technique to compress time and skip the less interesting parts of what was happening. The actual business end of the birth itself is of course in real time. Enjoy!
