A group of guests at Disney's Animal Kingdom got a little more magic than they bargained for when a pregnant Giraffe unexpectedly went into labor.


Most of the time, animals are ushered back to their private enclosures to give birth, but if labor comes on unexpectedly, it can result in dramatic experiences like this one caught on video.

The Kilimanjaro Safari closed shortly after the birth.


In an Instagram post from WDW News Today, they wrote:

"We interrupt this regularly scheduled Monday to bring you A LIVE BIRTH AT KILIMANJARO SAFARIS. That's right! A sweet giraffe mama is currently giving birth on the savanna. They tried bringing her backstage, but she just wants to chill tbh."





According to Heavy, a typical giraffe birth can last anywhere from "30 minutes to two hours."

Fans weren't sure whether or not they wished they were there.







It seems Disney is overflowing with new Giraffes!

The Kilimanjaro Safari has reportedly been closed for the last several days, though it's unclear whether or not this is due to the giraffe birth. Disney hasn't issued any statement announcing when the ride will reopen.

One thing is for sure: there won't be many guests having such an exciting ride for quite a while!

Are we being lazy or is it self-care?

That is what you should ask yourself first, before you judge.

Life is an arduous journey and a constant energy suck.

It was inevitable we'd find shortcuts to get by.

It's all about survival.

Redditor Batman_In_Peacetime wanted to hear about the times we just didn't care enough to try harder. They asked:

"What is a lazy thing you began doing when you realised you can live with it?"

Be it on a blind date, at a party where you don't know anyone, or sitting next to someone on an airplane, starting a conversation with a total stranger is difficult.

As much as we'd all like to be friendly, far too often we find ourselves at a loss for words.

It doesn't help that we generally have no idea of what these people's various interests are, making it anyone's guess how they'll respond.

But some have this problem solved, finding a go-to topic which is always guaranteed to get a response, no matter who you're talking to.

Redditor Blugged_Bunny was curious to hear what people thought was the best way to begin a conversation with strangers, leading them to ask:

"What is your go-to 'small talk' topic with strangers?"

Quality comes with price. That's a fact you can't escape. If you hire someone to fix your home, and want them to do the best job, you're going to have to pay above average prices. That's fine. Pay the people what they're worth for the great job they did. However, we live in a world where everyone is looking for their payout, even if what they've given you is less than ideal.

Don't overpay for any of these.

People Divulge The Opinion That Is The Smallest Hill They're Willing To Die On

Not everyone is going to believe what you believe. Our own experiences and values add up to make us who we are. Without them, we'd all be the same amorphous blob of consciousness covering the planet in bland beliefs. You hold something in high regard, and that might mean someone else disagrees with you.

Hold your ground, and be ready to die on that hill, kind of like these people.
