Rumble PASSIONATE conservationists at Chester Zoo have captured the moment a rare Rothschild’s giraffe calf is born - including its first wobbly steps into the world. The five-foot tall youngster arrived at 3:20pm on April 3 to eight-year-old mum Orla. Zookeepers named the young female calf Narus after a valley in Uganda’s Kidepo National Park, where conservationists are trying to save the species. After falling over six feet from her mother into a bed of straw, the giraffe surveyed her new home before taking her first tentative steps.
