    Meet April, a 15-year-old giraffe living at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. April has already given birth to three calves in the past, and she’s about to have her fourth. April is a bit of a cougar because her baby daddy, Oliver, is only 5 years old and this is his first time being a father and having a baby. As the birth of April’s baby neared, the park decided to livestream her pen and capture the calf’s entry into the world. So here are some interesting facts that can make watching April's experience a little more intriguing: - Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months. - At birth, the front hooves come out first followed by the snout. - Giraffes give birth standing up, causing the calf to fall a few feet to the ground. - Calves are six feet tall at birth. - Once a giraffe's water breaks, there are few moments of pacing - then the front hooves begin to appear. - A giraffe's birthing lasts on average 20-30 minutes. - The giraffe will spend the first few minutes licking her calf clean and encouraging it to stand. - Within 10 minutes the calf is able to stand and even walk. - Within 30 minutes the calf is able to run. - Calves nurse only from their mothers for about 4 months until they can begin eating solid foods (leaves). 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.
