Creation Devotional October 12 - Biology

Daily Devotional – October 12



Did you realize that baby giraffes wear “baby booties” during birth? A mother giraffe is pregnant with the baby for 15 months. When she is ready to give birth, she does not lie down, but remains standing, and the newborn baby drops six feet to the ground! With such an abrupt entrance, the baby giraffe enters the world.


The baby giraffe needs to arrive in the world immediately prepared to run from lions, hyenas and leopards. This means that the baby giraffe’s hard hooves have to be ready for use at the moment of birth. So, how is the mother protected from the baby’s sharp hooves during the birthing process? God in His wisdom has given the baby giraffe protective gelatin socks that cover the hooves. You could say that God has given the baby giraffe “baby booties” to protect the mother from the baby’s hooves in the birth canal as the baby is being born. As the baby giraffe walks around, the gelatin sloughs off the hooves. Evolution would say these gelatin socks happened by accident and chance over millions of years. This makes me wonder how many giraffe mothers had their insides ripped up by the exposed hooves before some random process covered them with gelatin? God knew what giraffe mothers needed protection, and what the baby giraffes needed to be ready to run immediately after birth, so He created “baby booties” to help them both!


[He] doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

~ Job 9:10
