    NY - Giraffe Watch: April, 15, due to give birth at Animal Adventure Park #3

    Amid the flooding, creme egg debacle and other disasters, I thought we needed an upbeat story to follow on here. April is due to give birth at any time now. A few noteworthy points from the article:


    • April is 15 - her 4th calf
    • April has never lost a calf nor had a stillborn - odd rumor
    • Oliver is 5 - his 1st calf
    • The calf will weigh around 150 lb 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.
    • Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months
    • Those "things" on their heads are called ossicones.

    Don't miss it!

    According to a Sunday update from the zoo, it only takes a giraffe 30 minutes to go through active labor.

    Can we post screen shots of April without a link in this thread? I don't know how to link the feed.
    ETA: or is that too gross?

    Finally!!! April is pushing out that Buick and Oliver looks like saying "Hi Babe, you're on your own.."..;--) Hope all goes well, this is the ultimate Easter present.

    I have collected way too many screenshots of giraffe butt in the past two months than I'm going to know what to do with.

    And I'm also getting concerned. Not that I know how this should go. There just doesn't seem to be any progress in a while...
