  • April the pregnant giraffe at Animal Adventure Park

April is 15. This will be her fourth calf.

Giving its latest bulletin on her marathon pregnancy, the park in Harpusville, upstate NY, said: "Today's photo is of the udder, to show mammary development". Veterinarians at Animal Adventure Park has been posting daily updates on their Facebook page.

The bulletin added: "Physical body condition remains the same, comfort level has not changed, behavior is on point". "She enjoyed extended yard time today in the warm weather and sun". Just more indication of heading in the right direction.

"Well Giraffe Fans, here we are approaching another weekend without a giraffe calf..." Until then, you'll have to enjoy watching April via the live cam. April has never lost a calf nor had a stillborn.

The Resurrection of Jesus ... John 20:1-18
When we celebrate Easter , we express the confident assurance that the risen Christ indwells us even as we live in Christ. Why not tell others during the Easter season? It's easy to find bad news; let's be bearers of the Good News.

One of the changes that indicates active labor is increased pacing in addition to pushing and contractions.

But don't go rushing to send the calf a nice long scarf or something - the wait continues.

Upon naturally weaning, the calf will move on to another facility to start a breeding program there. Animal Adventure Park officials can not retain offspring, as it would lead to incestuous mating and undermine the genetics of the program and species. Thousands upon thousands of commenters voiced their frustration on Facebook and YouTube, and the stream was restored within an hour or so.

"I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention", he said. Patch explained that it's not very likely that you will be able to tell April's labor until you see an actual hoof begin to poke out of her rear-end. Now, April's big moment could potentially be imminent. There is no telling when April's waters will burst and when she will finally give birth. Merchandise featuring April the giraffe has already been sold to people to keep themselves entertained while waiting for April's calf. It might not come as much of a surprise, that a discussion soon followed regarding how staff would lead a pregnant, and active laboring giraffe back inside to her stall and birthing area. Once born, April's calf is expected to be approximately six feet tall at birth and weigh about 150 pounds. Once the calf is born and the sex is determined, Animal Adventures will post a contest announcement on their social media platforms where you can submit your name suggestions.
