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:

THINGS TO KNOW:
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.

We need to be thankful for this healthy young giraffe. As you may or may not know, a young giraffe born June 15 and named Julius, died today at a Maryland zoo. Baby Julius had been bottle fed by veterinary staff when it was clear he would not nurse on his own. More on baby Julius can be found here https://www.google.com/amp/people.com/pets/julius-the-baby-giraffe-dies-in-maryland-zoo-after-1-month/amp/. And is trending on Twitter #TeamJulius
