Now Baby Giraffe is beginning to show his personality!!!! Quite a bit has been done since the last post. I have worked on the mother's coat quite a bit, added to the baby's mane, worked on his little horns, and have now begun the shading in his face area.
Some of the facts that you may not know about giraffes is that each giraffe's coat is individual and acts like our fingerprints. The gestation period is 15 months, and the calf also nurses for 15 months. A baby's horns are flat against its skull when it is born, and they pop upright during the first week of life.
I am hoping the next time I post this baby, he will be completed... but I am not promising anything! :-)
