This birth was seen in the rainy season near Kamqua waterhole in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in South Africa. The newborn blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus) made a number of unsuccesful attempts to get up, despite the the support of his attentive mother. He was, however, soon up and about.
