Giraffe Baby

Most babies measured 5ft would be considered big – but newborn giraffe Margaret at Chester Zoo, UK is seen as unusually small for her species. More photos of the animal being fed by her keepers inside! How sweet!

    I don’t know why, but that’s the most annoying animal I’ve ever seen.

    giraffes are pointless

    giraffs are stupid

    how is it annoying? how can an animal look annoying?

  10. CJ February 2, 2008 at 4:07 pm #

    What a darling baby. And so fond of her caretaker. That’s heartwarming.

    Also: Giraffe poos are not that big a deal. Minimal expenditure for the honor of being trusted by such a special creature. Those of us who know what it’s like to truly bond with a fur creature totally “get” these photos. I feel bad for those who never have.

    Very cute. Interesting how the background stone wall resembles the giraffe’s fur pattern.

    Thats so cute.

  14. B February 2, 2008 at 8:05 pm #

    Wow. Mark couldn’t even spell turd correctly.

  15. Dezza February 2, 2008 at 10:03 pm #

    Give him a few years and he’ll look great on my carpet.

    Uhhhh… fur creature? Truly bond? Yeaaaah… so… you’re a furry?

    Giraffes are cute. and Babys are cute when you don’t have to clean em :)

  18. 3M February 3, 2008 at 12:53 am #

    I’m sorry that you that don’t care about animals are so selfish and stupid. we are suppose to be good steward of the Earth. I guess you people are very Lonely. I will pray for you. Hopeful that will help.

  19. Jen February 3, 2008 at 4:23 am #

    This giraffe baby is adorable. Sadly, giraffes are among the animals that will soon become endangered, if they are not already.

    Contrary to the opinion of some people on this board, they are not stupid. But a big shout out to Mark (#7), for not being able to spell the word “giraffe.” You’re a genius.

  20. paco February 3, 2008 at 11:37 am #

    cute, her face makes me think of a Seahorse, just bigger

  21. Summer February 3, 2008 at 10:37 pm #

    Alex- LOL!

  22. ian February 3, 2008 at 11:00 pm #

    looks like some kind of freaky land seahorse.

    That is sooooo cute!!!! i want one!!!

  24. Mary Anne February 4, 2008 at 8:48 pm #

    I want one!

  25. Susie February 5, 2008 at 4:21 am #

    Too, too, too, too, TOOOOOOOO cute for words!!!!

    My only heartbreak for Margaret is that she is going to be living out her life in a zoo (captivity), and has absolutely no say in the matter.

    But the photos of this baby giraffe are precious, and I wish her a long, safe, healthy, and HAPPY life.

    Ummmmm……. Margaret is not an IT. She is a FEMALE. Animals are not “ITs.” Why did you write: “It’s perfect”? Unless you mean that “Jeffrey” is perfect as a name, but then…….. HER name is MARGARET, and how boringly unoriginal (and typical) to want to name her after an American toy store chain, especially when Margaret was born and lives in Great Britain.

    you’re stupid if you think giraffes are stupid. wtf???kind of comment is that????? retard

  32. I LOVE GIRAFFES February 6, 2008 at 12:24 am #


  33. Raylee February 7, 2008 at 3:15 pm #

    So sad how some people are so miserable that they can’t even see the beauty in the small things. These pictures, and that baby, are precious. I too know what it’s like to bond with a furry creature. Those who don’t understand should be eliminated.

    Look at her eyes, they’re so trusting and full of love. She is truely innocent. For those who say Giraffes are pointless…..YOU are pointless!! At least this wonderful creature has a place in the Kingdom.

  34. outvoiced February 7, 2008 at 3:31 pm #

    Raylee … I so agree with you these people above saying negative things about a beautiful animal have no heart they are sleepers in this wondrous world we live in..PEOPLE WHO TAKE FOR GRANTED OR SHOW DISDAIN FOR NATURE AND LIFE ARE DEAD INSIDE ..
    a true and absolute waste of life..
    these people are the reason we have pollution in our drinking water and air these people are the kind that see life other than there own as noting no respect no love for the oneness that is all things.. these are godless people.THE TYPE OF PEOPLE THAT THINK ANIMALS HAVE NO SOUL…..I do not speak in a religious manner but one of the ether the chi the energy of all this is life of all that is you and me ..
    they have a long way to go before they will ascend to a greater level of being..

  35. Will February 8, 2008 at 12:55 am #

    A beautiful animal. THANK YOU. surely it is not as stupid as some of the comments above.

  36. Nads February 8, 2008 at 1:05 am #

    I love the giraffe and Alex’s comment was hilarious. Get over yourselves.

  37. hahahahaha February 8, 2008 at 8:30 am #

    “I don’t know why, but that’s the most annoying animal I’ve ever seen.”

  38. Alex (a different one) February 8, 2008 at 2:45 pm #

    It’s pretty sad when you lack a life so much that you have to look at pictures you don’t like, give an email address, bogus or otherwise, and then take the time to type out a comment. Alex’s comment was pretty funny, I admit, but to mark (#7), giraffe’s may be stupid, but they don’t spend their time look at us online and posting about how dumb we are do they?

    N’ by the way, I think those pictures are cute.

  39. Susan February 9, 2008 at 2:07 pm #

    This is a baby that would not have survived in the wild so the fact that she must live in captivity means alot of humans care to make the effort. For the gift of life, she is not to be pitied even if she will likely always be captive. In captivity she can live as a steward for humans to learn about and admire her species….hopefully for many years.
    Margaret’s species is more rare all the time….mostly directly & indirectly due to humans. It is only right that she be cared for by our species. Margaret IS ‘special’….more than can be said for most of you. That in itself is sad.

  40. Rowdy72 February 9, 2008 at 8:02 pm #

    I bet if he was expecting a little kiss and got a head butt instead he wouldn’t get his face so close to that little baby. Still very beautiful pics…

  41. Alexander February 10, 2008 at 2:10 am #

    what a sexual giraffe

  42. karen February 10, 2008 at 8:16 am #

    Oh man… she’s soooo cute… I wish i could be the keeper!

  43. Ham February 13, 2008 at 6:50 pm #

    Did you see the tounge on that animal? Women would love it.

  44. mum2abc February 15, 2008 at 12:00 am #

    What a shame that the mother is not feeding it as nature intended. Although being short maybe the baby can’t reach the teat?
    Beautiful looking and looks almost tame – I would love to have one!!!

  45. harleyblues February 19, 2008 at 7:27 am #

    ahhh the lil guy or girl is tooo cute!

  46. bikerbowl February 19, 2008 at 9:46 pm #

    How come the baby isn’t nursing? Did something happen to it’s Mum? It’s a darling. Obviously the handler is very much in tune with Margaret…..

  50. caitlin February 21, 2008 at 7:21 pm #

    Wow– look at those eyes! They’re huge!
    She’s adorable.
    And I’m not even going to say anything about the other comments. Haha, why waste my time?

  51. Michael February 24, 2008 at 2:41 pm #

    ha ha You cant spell terd right.

    Ps. If you wanted to know its spelled turd!!!!

  52. English Teacher February 25, 2008 at 12:10 am #


    And “ha ha” is spelled “ha-ha.”

    And “cant” is spelled “can’t.”

    And “Ps.” is spelled “P.S.”

    And “its” is spelled “it’s.”

    Chester Zoo is one of the best zoos in the UK, And its Mark who the TURD

  55. Lenny Hendrix March 2, 2008 at 6:40 pm #

    My goodness, She is so extremely wonderfully beautiful. Respect. I would have liked to have known her story. Why she’s fed by humans,something happened to her mama?
    Giraffes are graceful, and look so wise,as they slowly walk around seeing everything from far above. The lion is scared to attack a baby giraffe,as the mother can kick a lion to death.
    So if the lion is the king of the jungle, what is the giraffe to be called?
    Ruler of the Savannah? =)
    These creatures are friendly and peaceful. Very special.

  57. Peggy March 5, 2008 at 3:44 am #

    sooo cute
    i’m hella jealous of that guy
    but the despite its cuteness the giraffes eyes creep me out a bit.

  58. Barb March 8, 2008 at 7:29 pm #

    echoing “outvoiced” thoughts, and while we may be “out voiced” by the selfish, shallow, disrespectful, evil and so negative parties in this world, we are not silenced, and with enough truly caring and good hearted respectful others in the world, our voices can and do make a difference. As is stated in the poem Desiderata, “ignore the dull and the ignorant, for they too have an opinion”, but that is not to say that opinion has any real meaning to anyone. I would also love to be the person fortunate enough to have the job of sheer joy that makes ones heart smile, that the caretaker of that giraffe baby has, untainted, pure, innocent, magnificent beauty, as “Creator” by any name intended it to be, to share my time and my love with such magnificent and beautiful creatures.

  59. Su March 15, 2008 at 2:12 am #

    Lindas fotos, maravilhosas… O olhar do homem e da girafa sao generosos. Amei.

  60. Stephanie March 18, 2008 at 3:04 am #

    That was cute isn’t it amazing how God can make such creatures and do you ever wonder how he does those things that you cant even think how He would do it!!!


  61. Pati March 24, 2008 at 1:34 am #

    These are among the cutests pictures I have in my collection. Tthank you so much for sharing them. One of God’s creatures that is for sure head and shoulders above the rest.

  62. Eli Cay March 24, 2008 at 3:10 pm #

    I would like to take care of this little baby. I will be doing for free. Let me do it at least for one day.

    I love giraffes. Baby Margaret is especially beautiful. Thanks for introducing her to us.

    soooooooooooooooooo cute, wish I was there

  70. kelli April 28, 2008 at 8:08 pm #

    omg i could use these pics for my project in school

  71. Mem May 3, 2008 at 9:26 pm #

    im kind of wondering why people who hate these pictures/giraffes are even responding. surely if they hate them that much they wouldnt be bothered to take the time. it makes no sense to me,and it certainly is weird to think they get a rush from saying how ‘stupid’ a baby animal is. but oh well..giraffes are actually a favourite animal of mine,and i think Margaret is such a lovely little thing. giraffes seem soo very gentle,even the look out of their eyes says that. i wish her good health and a long happy life with her mum and the rest of her family :)

  72. Rylee May 7, 2008 at 1:15 am #

    i LOVE this animal it is my fave!!!

  73. priyanka May 15, 2008 at 9:54 am #

    soo sweet..what an adorable baby and such beautiful eyes …aawwwwwww

  74. Simone June 21, 2008 at 7:14 am #

    btw, please do not get any ideas and go out and get a giraffe, they need large quantities of space and food, and no matter how cute it probably would be sad from being away from their habitat, and would get lonely. This one is probably an orphan or sick, therefore needs attention, and probably be released soon :) sorry to crush some of you guy’s hopes and dreams.

    Everyone has their own opinions. It’s fine that Mark and Alex and other people don’t like the animals, and same with Karen and Kymm and such. :D

    <3, Simone

  75. Vive June 30, 2008 at 2:48 am #

    How incredably beautiful! Will you look at those eyes? She’s heads above. Thank you for sharing

    Giraffes are my favorite animals in the whole world you people are stupid to think giraffes are pointless because no animal in the world is pointless.God made everything with a point.Giraffes are cute and nice and amazing.And if you think they are stupid for whatever they do I bet they think your pretty stupid too.They are smarter than you are too. You can’t even imagine how sweet and smart and amazing to be with. I bet you wish you were a giraffe because I do.Giraffes are cooler than you and I but wwwwwwwwwwwaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy more you than I.You people are stupid and annoying if you think its stupid. That baby is a special creature from god and it was made with a purpose and if you can’t respect that then the heck with youpeople of Earth. Animals have more of a purpose in life than anything on Earth. Adnd guess what else, WE ARE ALL ANIMALS!

  82. TEKUI KINGI August 17, 2008 at 3:45 am #

    How tall was the guy? He and the baby are the same height!

  83. Jamie August 21, 2008 at 11:29 pm #

    Awwww! Margaret’s sooo cute!!! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful creature with us. :)

    For those of you who think a baby giraffe is stupid, how is it stupid?!? It’s one of God’s creatures, it’s a beautiful, innocent baby, and it’s designed to do what it does, so again I ask, how is it stupid? If you think it’s so stupid then don’t waste your time.

    Anyway, thanks again for sharing! I agree with everyone who said positive things about this gorgeous baby giraffe.

  84. Singapore August 31, 2008 at 1:50 pm #

    This is the cutest thing I have EVER seen in my life! But I have som ethings to say about the people out in this world looking at these pics and say cruel things!!!!i AM GOIN TO GIVE YA’LL A LITTLE PEICE OF MY MIND!

    Alex: How is this animal ANNOYING? I think that from my veiw that I see you in right now,You are a cruel animal hater that does not give a crap about anybody or anything but yourself.

    Mark:STUPID? NO!…whats stupid is that you think that an animal… WHO YOU HAVE NEVER HAD A CHANCE WITH …and you are saying that it is STUPID?!?!


    and one more thing to say:

    Kymm:I agree with you!!

  92. Brianna January 23, 2010 at 7:07 pm #

    Britany: I agree with you! People are cruel! I dont understand why people are like that! An dya’ll this is one of God’s creatures.. respect that and so are you…and a lot of peopl erespect you! i think…
