As animal lovers anxiously await the arrival of April the giraffe’s baby, her zookeepers at Animal Adventure Park are sharing vital details about the progress of her pregnancy. April is not in labor yet, the zoo shared in a Facebook post on March 13, but she is definitely nearing that stage! After 18 months of carrying around a giant calf, April is finally on the verge of giving birth. Now’s the time to cue up the live stream, because things are about to get interesting.
“Are you on the edge of your seat? Afternoon and evening keeper and vet checks continue to indicate significant changes in April,” read a statement from the Harpursville, New York zoo. “Her back end has become significantly larger and relaxed, motion and pulsing in this area has been noted, and discharge has been observed. Ladies and gentlemen – we are close. We are still not confirming active labor, but will state all physical signs are headed in the right direction.”
They noted in an update on the morning of March 14 that, “Keeper report indicates April remains in the same condition as observed in earlier overnight checks.” Go, mama, go! Rest assured that while New York is ravaged by Winter Storm Stella, April and all the other animals at the zoo are safe and sound!
Yay! That’s the best news ever! We’re so excited to see this adorable bundle of joy enter the world; like the zoo said, we’ve been incredibly anxious, watching the live stream constantly to see if April finally gives birth. The long, hard wait may finally be over! Seriously; it’s been three whole weeks since Animal Adventure Park initially put up their live stream.
