ANIMALS – Here is the list of animals who can walk minutes after their arrival in the world.

Baby animals are undeniably one of the cutest things on the planet. We could spend for hours just staring at them and observing what they’re going to do next.

Most of us love to witness their first steps. Readers Digest compiled the list of animals who can walk minutes after they are born. Here is the list:


Giraffes are among the animals who can walk minutes after birth. Just give them 30 to 60 minutes to fix their wobbly feet then they’re good to go. A zookeeper named Stephanie Mantilla said these calves were dropped “six feet straight to the ground” after being born.
