Webcam focused as Greenville Zoo waits for birth of giraffe

Posted August 11, 2014

The Greenville Zoo in South Carolina is awaiting the arrival of the newest resident.

Autumn, a 7-year old giraffe, is expected to give birth to her second calf any day now. The zoo has a web camera positioned on the mother-to-be.

A baby giraffe can weigh between 120 and 150 pounds at birth and stand 6 feet tall.

Watch the live webcam. (Note: The giraffe is not always in view of the camera.)

    This is so exciting. She had another baby last spring. I've visited the zoo in Downtown Greenville - quite nice. It's wonderful to see all the conservancy work they are doing!
