Official April the Giraffe Apparel

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!

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 
Oliver is 5  - his 1st calf

They have some of the largest indoor stalls 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.  Unsafe weather and yard conditions may limit their yard access.

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 on average

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.

Really missing the live feed guys!

How long does baby boy giraffe get to spend outdoors interacting with his environment?
I understand you live in the colder north, but each time I have tuned in during the day, this youngster, ready to experience life, is looking at 4 dead walls.

You guys realize that most people that watched the giraffe cam will probably not go to the zoo where April is so no one will be able to see her ever again 😑😵🔥

What happened to this video??? It used to be 4 hours long, now it's 40 minutes. YouTube, what the what??? It was something my kids and I were really interested in watching from the start of the process before the hooves emerged to the end when baby got up and nursed. A little bit of nature most people in the world would otherwise not be able to observe. Not cool, YouTube. Not cool.

I was awake and watching from just before the white sack came out been watching since Feb when the cam went up...And I was there tonight when you all waved goodbye and did your last live feed.. I have been crying all day cause I found 2 Tribute Videos for you guys from a couple of people that think your as amazaing as I think you are,,...Again thank you for letting us join you on your journey...You helped a sick lady get through some tuff times this last 2 months and I thank you for that.. I am already trying to find myself going to the live feed..Cant wait for my text alerts and hopefully another quick live feed.. Could you possibly send out a text alert if you do go live...Thank you and god bless you all
