Arusha the Rothschild giraffe calf is nuzzled by its parents at the
Schonbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria. Arusha – born 5ft 7ins tall after mum’s
15 month pregnancy – already has a head for heights after the six foot drop
to the ground when Rita gave birth standing up. ‘The calf was a bit wobbly
but within a few minutes mum had it up on its feet and feeding,’ said one
keeper.
