Memphis Zoo welcomes baby giraffe

April the giraffe at Animal Adventure Park still has not given birth.

The zoo's giraffe herd is at eight.

Here are a few other notable examples of giraffes born in recent months.

Dobby is more than 5-feet-one tall and appears to be doing better after he received a plasma transfusion to help build his immune system.

Bogey was born in the giraffe exhibit in front of dozens of visitors. Mother Tyra was in labor for two hours before giving birth to the girl, who has yet to be named.


- The Memphis Zoo on Monday, April 10, announced the birth of a baby boy giraffe, Bogey.

Because this is her first baby, Akili "did not provide appropriate maternal behavior", the zoo explained in a press release. Because of this, the zoo is having to raise Akili by hand.

Despite the long wait, April is said to be in good health, as her baby bump continues to grow.

But that process can last as little as 30 minutes, say the folks at Animal Adventure Park in NY, where April is lodged.
