Behold, the Power of Licking

So you say you just woke up, you’re covered in sawdust and goo, your legs don’t work, and you’re disoriented? You’re either pledging a fraternity or a newborn giraffe, in which case a bit of Mom’s Magic Tongue makes it all better.



  1. In either case, really.

    I think the “Ehn” tag applies here too!

  6. How can something so leggy and knobbular looks like such a squishy pile when it’s not standing?

  7. Oh that was such a struggle! I wanted to applaud when bebeh finally got up on its feets.

    Hehe! I live in a college town and you can see someone in that condition nearly any Saturday or Sunday morning! The baby giraffe is much cuter than any of them, though!

  11. I see mom goes for the ear licks. *pushes glasses up, checks off item on clipboard*
    mmhmm. very good. the desire to ear-nom definitely crosses species lines.

    also – well done, little giraffe!

    To say nothing of being dropped on your head from a 6 foot drop! Mama gives birth standing.

    No matter what the species, a mom is a mom the world over.

    Giraffes are such sweet creatures. If you ever get a chance to watch a documentary called “Tall Blondes”…you’ll fall in love with this sweet creature.

    wow, i love giraffes, but this was awesome and creepy all at the same time. the thought of licking all the goo and sawdust… *shudders* i know that’s totally normal, natural, mom-type behavior, but it still gives me the willies.
