April the Giraffe is expecting a calf!

Follow the process as she and her mate, Oliver, welcome a new baby.

Animal Adventure Park
Harpursville, NY  

Have some Fun & Support the Park with our Giraffe Emojis! Proceeds directly return to the Park!

Our Giraffe Cam is sponsored by Mazuri Exotic Animal Nutrition.
Post pregnancy nutrition is important, so Mazuri is gifting 100s of pounds of food to keep April on her A-Game!
Thank You Mazuri!

Inspired to sponsor our Giraffes? We have a safe platform form gifting linked below:

April is 15   - her 4th calf  
April has never lost a calf nor had a stillborn - odd rumor 
Oliver is 5  - his 1st calf

They have some of the biggest pens in the nation (sq ft per animal).  We take pride in our indoor housing and the level of enrichment and care to keep them happy and healthy. 

The calf will weigh around 150lb 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.  We will not rush this process – it is just a documented range of captive weaning. 

Once the calf is born, we will have a contest to name it.

The keepers will go in with April, clean her pen, give her treats (but not Oliver).  He is a bull - and a bull is a bull is a bull!

Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months

Upon naturally weaning, the calf will move on to another facility to start a breeding program there.  We cannot retain offspring, as it would lead to incestuous mating and undermine the genetics of the program and species.  

Those "things" on their heads are called ossicones.

Bulls (male giraffes) only really care about two things- fighting and the unmentionable....
Oliver may share space with April, but for short periods.  Bulls take no part in rearing young. 

They eat hay and specialized giraffe diet but love romaine lettuce and carrot treats. 

April's water source, enrichment, and solo hay feeder are out of sight of the camera view.

This is Animal Adventure's first giraffe calf.

I think Animal adventure park is doing a marvelous job with April and her pregnancy. Thank you for this opportunity to watch such an amazing birth of a giraffe

I have been a fan of April and Oliver for going on the 4th week. She is so awesome to watch, people that get annoyed and anxious need to watch something else as no breed including humans can rush the birth process it takes time and baby will come when it is ready!!

Been watching April for two weeks. I run the live feed all day in my classroom and my students are all excited about all the "giraffe" activities we have done... they have even chosen a name...
Elizabeth Williams

In this time of turmoil watching and waiting for this calf to be born and all the confusion going on in the government and rest of the world the name should be HOPE if a girl
No baby yet??? We've been watching for what seems like weeks! Good Lord! April will deliver in April. Will someone send me a message when the water breaks? Lbvs!

I absolutely love watching April. The staff is totally amazing with April. I am so excited and am afraid I am going to miss the birth. I even watch you tube when I wake up in the middle of the night to see if April is delivering. Totally amazed. You are all great. One thing that I forgot to mention is we were up at animal adventure in August and we were told that April was going to have a baby. I had my grandchildren up here from Virginia so we are extremely happy/excited because we met April.
When is her actual due date, does anyone know?
shan bernier

I love watching the live feed and seeing updates. I usually check it 3 times a day to see if she gave birth. It's amazing to watch and I bet April wants that baby out of her more than anyone else that has been waiting. Mother nature doesn't care about anyone's timeline. You guys are amazing and so gentle with them. You can see the love you have for all your animals, in the way you talk about them. Thank you for letting the world experience this amazing process with you.

Corally for a name (after both handlers ) or Patch for male or Patches, Patience , (something we all have learned) Serenity for a name.
But all in all, just want to say thank you for live feed.
Debbie Spurgeon
I cannot find the LIVE stream, e en on the website. What's up???
Judy Keech
What is in that corner that she goes to all the time
Jordan Morstatt
I have been watching this for days and the first day my mom showed her to me I said that they should name it modesty. I have no idea why but I think it would be cute.
Norma Powell
It has been wonderful watching and seeing how many people from all of the world are following her.

Pamela Valley
Due to the uproar in parts of our world.... the name, "Peace" would be perfect. Love you, April. I can't stop watching you.
valerie potbury
