When you have a livestream running 24/7, you are definitely bound to catch a few unexpected moments.

April the giraffe gave birth to a healthy 5'9", 129-pound baby boy on Saturday, and the new mom is very protective of her calf. So when a vet got too close to the new addition during a checkup inside their pen, April raised a massive leg and kicked him square in the balls. That's one badass mama!

Check it out.


After the first kick landed, the vet tried to walk around April and bribe her with snacks, but she nearly punted his nuts again. Don't mess with an overprotective new mama.

Yeah, April may live in a zoo, but this giraffe's natural instincts are still 100% intact.
