April the Giraffe Goes Into Labor

How does the labor process work? This means that her calf will enter the world from a considerable height, usually up to six feet high. April's had a live stream camera pinned on her since February, when she was first expected to pop. April has her own website and even a clothing line. "Made possible in part by their sponsorship, Animal Adventure Park will be donating $25,000 to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation!"

In December, giraffes were listed as a vulnerable species because their population has declined by almost 40 percent in the last three decades, according to conservationists. April the giraffe merchandise was sold. The BBC proclaimed that this the "most anticipated birth since Prince George".

It takes about an hour-and-a-half for a giraffe to be born.

He began nursing not long after. Oliver, however, will not assist in raising the calf. Standing is essential for the calf for it to be able to nurse from April. Within the first day, though, it will should able to run, according to Animal Planet.

We learned that April is 15 years old. April has delivered her calf.and it's a boy! "A giraffe' gestation stage lasts for 13 to 15 months", McCartney said. The mama giraffe tenderly licked her calf, which began to slowly pick its head up from the floor of the pen.

Update 3.26pm: April the giraffe has given birth at a NY zoo as more than a million people around the world watched live.

Now that April is on the verge of giving us all what we've been waiting for, we can surely look forward to the park's morning and evening Facebook updates including an overload of cuteness from a sweet baby giraffe calf. But she's not anxious because this will be her fourth calf.

Keepers continue to stress the fact that "there is no reason for worry about her or the calf's health". At times when they've been in the same pen, they've cuddled up like any loving couple would. Oliver is only allowed inside with April a little at a time and under close supervision. "Everything she is doing is surely pointing to her going into labor soon", Animal Adventure Park wrote on Friday.

"Both Animal Adventure Park and Toys "R" Us have the common goal of bringing awareness to the plight of the giraffe as well as the need to create a sustainable future for them", the Facebook post stated. Her restlessness could be a sign of new developments.
