Over the past month, many people have been focused on a giraffe from Animal Adventure Park in upstate New York who is about to give birth. This giraffe, April, is currently pregnant with her 4th calf and is set to give birth any day now. April currently resides in of the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, and is 15 years old. April’s mate, Oliver, is five years old and this will be his 1st calf. A calf weighs around 150lbs and will grow to be around six feet tall. Animal Adventure Park set up a live video camera to allow people to view April and possibly view her birth. On average, giraffes are pregnant for 15 months, and though the zoo does not know when April was first pregnant, they do expect her to give birth any day now. This will be Animal Adventure Park’s first giraffe calf and many people of all ages are excited to see this calf’s birth. There will be a contest to name the calf when it is born. You can find the page to vote on Animal Adventure’s website http://www.aprilthegiraffe.com/. “I am really excited to see the calf and I may even enter to name the calf,” said Niki D. ‘20.
