Post pregnancy nutrition is important, so Mazuri is gifting 100s of pounds of food to keep April on her A-Game!   The Official Feed Company of Animal Adventure!   http://www.mazuri.com/

Inspired to sponsor our Giraffes? We have a safe platform form gifting linked below:
https://www.gofundme.com/ApriltheGiraffe

THINGS TO KNOW:
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.

sadiemariepuggle
this is not the real site folks. go to www.aprilthegiraffe.com to be directed to the official site. The video that's playing here right now isn't live. It's dark in the barn now. If you keep watching this, you'll miss the birth.

Dern...I hate it that 11Alive isn't showing it on their facebook anymore....I miss the commenting!!! Where did all those watchers go?

They need a real vet as the one who worked out the birth window was completely wrong or was it just a ploy to get donations and visitor numbers up know the calf is not due for weeks yet.
Kelly Souza
did Toys R Us take over the feed?

Giraffes are cool. I went to an old theme park in Central Florida years ago. A giraffe was leaning out of its enclosure directly over me. I looked back and there was a tree. I pulled some limbs towards the giraffe so it could reach. Ironically, an animal built for reach needed a reach assist. Suddenly I had a giraffe friend. They seem pretty relaxed, fortunately. One hoof to the head and it's lights out.

Whatever is in that bucket they just gave her - she really, really likes!

Thank you AAP for doing this. Your staff are amazing and it's so clear that you love your animals (not just April and Oliver)! April and Oliver are just gorgeous and I hope the birth goes smoothly and well. Again, thank you so much for letting us share in this amazing experience xx

So maybe giraffes don't belong in NY. When I lived in NY.. I never saw a giraffe as a native animal. Just saying. I am sure the giraffe would agree.
LpsUnicorn Sparkles

Mads .2000
