Baby giraffes are called calves. During birth, the calf will fall 5 feet (1.5 m) to the ground, since mother giraffes give birth standing up! Baby giraffes are born six feet (1.8 meters) tall. They can grow an inch a day, and double their height in one year. Giraffe mothers often take turns watching over their calves, but if left alone, the infant patiently sits down and waits for its mother’s return.
