Although giraffe are usually physically and socially aloof it is nevertheless common for mothers with small calves to associate and a tendency for calves to cluster together in crèches in the care of a single adult female.
I have drawn this Botswana scene of a female giraffe of the southern African race suckling her infant beside a camel-thorn tree.  The other similar aged calf is in the care of this adult while its mother is away feeding within sight.
