9 baby animals stand up (or walk!) for the first time

"She stood right up. Cathy Jackson's little sister didn't stand up for months and months." 
It pleased him enormously to find his horse superior.

Human babies take a long time to do things. They just hang out, letting their parents carry them around for months before they even think about hoisting themselves up and taking a step or two.
Animal babies are a whole different story.
