As the entire country was anxiously awaiting a mother giraffe going into labor, another pregnant giraffe seemed to steal the spotlight. A livestream of April in her enclosure has been closely monitored by more than 100,000 viewers since last Friday, as the zoo anticipated she would deliver her baby at any moment. But it was Kipele, a mother giraffe at the Denver Zoo, that gave birth overnight on Wednesday to newborn Dobby, a male giraffe standing at just five feet tall and weighing 73 pounds.
