The extraordinary bond that a mother giraffe shares with her calf is unique among adult giraffes. To guard her young, a mother giraffe will gather with other females and their calves in nursery herds.

By keeping the infant animals together and moving across open spaces, the adult females can more easily observe the group and detect approaching predators.  If a calf is at risk of danger, its mother will stand over her offspring without hesitation and harshly kick any animal that gets too close.
