Baby giraffe facts: What to expect after April's baby is born

08 April 2017, 07:28 | Elizabeth Houston

The keepers will go in with April, clean her pen, give her treats (but not Oliver).

The pregnant giraffe at Animal Adventure Park had "quite an appetite" Thursday evening, a post on the park's Facebook page said.

The zoo has been reporting positive signs that indicate April could have her baby this week.

"Orla went into labor at around noon and, for a little while, we could just see two spindly legs poking out", Sarah Roffe, giraffe team manager, told AOL.

Almost 200,000 people were watching April the giraffe's every move on Wednesday afternoon. "Perhaps suggesting a new position of calf...we hope for launch sequence!" They drink water once every few days; the leaves provide hydration. No, I can not induce her, nor should we want to. Giraffe's instinctively hide their labor for however long it's lasting in order to not draw attention from predators who will wait out a giraffe's labor in order to attack once the calf is born. At birth it will weigh in at about 150 pounds and will stand at about 6' tall, Animal Adventure Park said.

Plug Power Inc Stock Skyrockets After Amazon.com. Inc
The company had revenue of $32.60 million for the quarter, compared to analyst estimates of $32.54 million. The stock has a 50 day moving average of $1.17 and a 200 day moving average of $1.34.

Park Owner Jordan Patch has said there will be a contest to name the calf after it is born and its gender is revealed. Animal Adventure Park takes pride in their indoor housing and the level of enrichment and care to keep the giraffes happy and healthy. And well over one-hundred thousand were watching on the Animal Adventure YouTube channel.

Yes, it is really a case of "world waiting on edge" ever since the pregnant giraffe's live-streaming became a sensation. In April 4, many baby watchers were again thrilled after seeing what seems to be pushing contractions, but April is taking her time and has not given birth until now.

"Orla delivered her youngster smoothly following a four-hour labour; bringing an end to her 15-month pregnancy", the Chester Zoo said. "We will get to see the giraffes' response today!" Bulls take no part in rearing young.

The park also posted the following facts on their Facebook page. So because of fears of inbreeding, the calf will be relocated to another facility once the weaning process is over.

"I always am overwhelmed with God's design so that was my first thought", she said.
