April The Giraffe Birth Live Stream: Watch Online!
April the Giraffe is expected to give birth at any moment, and Gossip Cop has a live stream available online. Watch it below!
The 15-year-old pregnant giraffe became an internet sensation in February when the Animal Adventure Park in upstate New York uploaded a live feed on YouTube to let the world watch her give birth. This will be April’s fourth calf, which is estimated to weigh around 150 pounds and stand about 6 feet tall at birth. The arrival of the baby animal will mark the zoo’s first giraffe calf.
But this special delivery has come after an incredibly long wait. As Gossip Cop reported, the Animal Adventure Park noted on its Facebook page in late March, “All observations, behavior, and predictions suggest a calf today, tonight. We would be shocked to get through the weekend without our newest addition.” An onsite doctor has been called to be by April’s side as she prepares to give birth. Park owner Jordan Patch also said Friday morning on “Good Morning America” that “April has progressed significantly overnight and, by all means, today is not the day to stop watching. We are there. We are close. All signs are go.”
That turned out to be a false alarm. Now two weeks later, it’s really happening. A giraffe’s pregnancy lasts around 15 months on average, and the delivery involves the calf’s front hooves coming out first, followed by its snout. Once the calf is born, there will be a contest to name it.
