HARPURSVILLE, NY — April teh Giraffe continues to be herself – though a bit moody by end of day.
Her vet reported a happy girl earlier Wednesday afternoon. As you can see from the live feed, her back end is huge and her tail is up.
Animal Adventure Park began livestreaming on YouTube on February 23 as April prepared to give birth, drawing worldwide attention.
This will be April’s fourth calf and the first for the father, Oliver.
Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months, according to Animal Adventure Park. The calf will weigh around 150 pounds and be approximately 6-feet-tall at birth.
Once the calf is born, the zoo will hold a contest to name it.
The video was initially removed after animal rights activists flagged the videos as “sexually explicit” before being restored.
