HARPURSVILLE, NY-- After weeks of watching, people across the country are wondering: When will April the giraffe give birth?

The short answer: soon.

Jordan Patch, owner of Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, answered a few questions about his web superstar for FOX 8 on Friday.

"Kim Kardashian was said to have broke the Internet a few years ago. I think April the giraffe will break the Internet," Patch laughed.

April was born at the Catskill Game Farm and is about 15 years old. Giraffes live between 19 and 25 years. This is her fourth baby.

Giraffes sleep very little so don't worry about this mama's beauty rest. According to her owner, she only sleeps about 2 hours a day. That's because sleeping for long periods of time makes them vulnerable in the wild.

It's for that same reason signs of labor won't be noticeable. Giraffes hide the process because it would be too easy for lions to pick off a mother and her young. Patch said labor could last two to six hours or a few days, but we're not going to see it all on the web cam.

Basically, we won't know April is giving birth until we see hooves. Within 30 to 60 minutes the calf will be on the ground, and another hour later the little one will be on its feet.

Will the web cam be kept on after the baby is born?
Sharon S
We watch the live cam. I'm curious if there is someone there through the night. Babies never come when we want them too... and just wondering if staff are watching too.
Sharon S
April and Oliver seem to have a great time together, why are they kept apart for most of the day?
Sharon S
I've been faithfully watching everyday. Does the giraffe feel any kind of pain during contractions? She doesn't seem to make any sounds. I did watch the birth of another giraffe and during the worst part she didn't make a peep.

will she have another calf or is she getting to old

Thanks for answering the questions! Go April, go Animal Adventure Park!

Just wanted to let you know we could not hear the questions being asked. Not sure if it is possible to have the audio from the folks asking the questions audible so we can hear the actual questions being asked.

Keep up the great work!

I love watching April and Ollie, but can you tell me please, how many of Aprils' previous calves were born indoors?
dottieku
Am I supposed to hear the questions? I cannot. I only hear the answers.
Linda Gardiner
i know that the weather is cold , but to have oliver and april shut in such small pens for such a long time is so cruel
Teresa Johnson
I have been watching 20 days
MFrances Littin
Does April need more exercise than walking in her pen?
christy peck
Keeping April on the screen while I'm working on other stuff is a zen thing for me. Whenever I look over at her I can feel the tension melt away.
Miriam

Karen Dillard
Are April and Oliver the only two giraffes at the park?

I visit my beloved April several times a day, and never goes to sleep without rubbing her belly and praying for her and her baby, I'm in Southern California, my beautiful sisters in Mexico also love her, my treat is seeing her, not without difficulty, laying down, a couple of days ago she lay for a little over 20 minutes, and I was happy to rub her baby, and soothingly talk to her, silly? maybe, but I think she knows. We have a bet with my two sisters. I'm betting for a gorgeous girl and wil love to call "Mimosa" one of the trees they eat from in the wild, which in Spanish means someone of loving or tender nature. I have learn through you and in my own research quite a bit, about this marvelous creatures.
Thank you all very much for giving us this incomparable experience, God bless you all, cyber kisses with hugs to April, Oliver and your daughter.
Love, gratitud and prayers from Riverside California, greetings to all loving people of the world

Thank You from Louisiana! Jeannine

Cat G

Barbara Ponting

Linda Jay

ralph deangelis
it's a boy lol if i'm right do i get naming rights lmao. Mares that carry to the left side they carry a colt. If right it's a filly lol
ralph deangelis
We start foal watch at least a month prior to labor, just be patient for the gift of life. I imagine Adventure park holds the same practice since this is a breeding program in that they begin watch a LEAST a month before the birth of any mammal. I used to HATE foal watch, documenting, long nights ect. Our college had us all do 6 hour shift each students. None of us were happy to have to offset our lives for a whole month prior to a live birth. Can't wait to see the baby Giraffe.
Patricia Young
Thanks ...For giving this to us...I think Dobby would make a good mate if April has a girl...and Willow would be a good mate if she has a boy ..Luv April ,Oliver soon to be baby and the crew involved in the care of them ...I have told my Granddaughter we will be visiting your park this summer looking forward to seeing all..
Teresa Morris
can't hear the questions
VarietyMusicLover
It would be cool to have a youtube 360 video on april cam
Pamela Valley
Thank you for all that you do. God bless you, your family and all of the animals. I have loved giraffes since I was a little girl; I'd run to the stall as soon as we arrived at the San Antonio Zoo (Tx). My honeymoon consisted of a trip to the San Diego Zoo. So, I am anxious to go see a giraffe; it's been too long. Again, you are amazing people!!!
Lisa Cobb
Thanks for answering questions, but we couldn't hear anything he was asking.
Susan Mclean
Thank you for all your info....God Bless you..and your work!
David Johnston
I remember Catskill Game farm, what a neat place. It was well ahead of it's time in zoo care for all of it's animals. That is where I first learned giraffes can spit, like their relatives camels, llamas and alpacas. Fortunately it was a near miss.
