Over the past week, it seems people have stopped talking so much about Donald Trump, and fixated on something new.
A 15 year old giraffe named April is about to give birth at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, NY, and millions of people are waiting for it to happen.
Don’t get me wrong, I actually think this is a much better use of the nations time than moaning about about something they voted for, this is exciting, and it’s kind of fun waiting for it to happen.
So here is the live stream of April’s pen, and a few facts about giraffes 🙂
This is April’s 4th calf, she was due mid February, but it has been a waiting game since then.
The baby will weigh about 150 lbs and stand nearly 6ft tall.
Mom will naturally raise the calf, with weaning could take between 6-10 months, maybe longer.
Once the calf is born, there will have a contest to name it.
The keepers will go in with April, clean her pen, give her treats.
Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months
