How did April the giraffe give birth?
Giraffes give birth like any other mammal: the baby comes from the uterus down through the vagina. The only difference is that a giraffe is very tall, so the baby has a long way to drop before it lands on the ground (or in April's case, in the soft hay of her enclosure).

Females give birth standing up.
A giraffe gives birth standing up. .
yes they give birth standing up so the baby giraffe wont die!
Giraffes don't have homes, nests or dens. They move aroundpretty much all the time. . A pregnant giraffe will simply try to find a spot that offerssome protection from predat…ors to give birth in. Usually the calfwill be up and able to follow its mother within one hour.
20 months between possible pregnancys, 16-18 months gestation(actual pregnancy)
Yes. Its a mammal.
out her vagina I think that they give birth under tree's because of the shades and obviously the close food supply as well as seeing if predators are approaching.
Once in a lifetime
No. Giraffes give birth through the vagina or birth canal, which is very close to the anus.
no a mother giraffe is not endangered while giving birth. .
No more or less than any other animal.
no, course its not possible.
The gestation period of a giraffe is 420-450 days, but the time the giraffe is in labour can vary, much like humans.
A giraffe gives birth 15 months after mating and stands up while doing so.
Yes they do. Giraffe's are like all Mammals. The mother giraffe is pregnant for nearly 400 days and at the end of it, a singe live giraffe calf is born. The calf is around 6 f…eet tall at birth making it one of the largest land animals at birth (next only to the Elephants I guess)
