Watch Live: April The Giraffe Close To Giving Birth

Harpursville, NY-(ENEWSPF)- We’ve been watching her for weeks, but zookeepers say April the Giraffe is close to giving birth to her calf.

Here’s what we know, according to the Park:

  • April is 15 – her 4th calf
  • April has never lost a calf nor had a stillborn
  • Oliver is 5 – his 1st calf

The calf will weigh around 150lb and will be about 6′ tall at birth.

The front hooves will come out first followed by the snout.

Mom will naturally raise the calf, with weaning could take between 6-10 months, maybe longer. We will not rush this process – it is just a documented range of captive weaning.

“Her body/belly is much less beach balled, as the bulges have streamlined. Perhaps suggesting a new position of calf…we hope for launch sequence!” Animal Adventure Park wrote on Facebook.

Once the calf is born, Animal Adventure Park will have a contest to name it.

And away we go.
