It’s Official! April the Giraffe is Expecting Again, Cue the Live Stream
Get ready for 15 months or so of giraffe live streaming action. April the giraffe is pregnant again.
So remember, who could forget, how last year the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville (down by Binghampton) announced that their 15 year old giraffe April was expecting a bundle of joy at any moment? Then when the park set up a web came and was live streaming April's enclosure so that the world could watch the calf come into the world? Then when April took her sweet time giving birth and the world was watching the live stream for months waiting for Tajiri to arrive?
Well, all that is about to happen again as this morning the Animal Adventure Park announced that after collecting April's ... excrement for a month and testing it that the now 16 year old giraffe is indeed expecting again making baby number 5!
The new addition isn't scheduled to arrive until Spring of 2019 as giraffes have a gestation period of about 15 months but her caretakers quicly reminded us that April likes to take her time and it could be 16, 17, 18, or even 19 months until the calf arrives.
Needless to say there is some time until the serious live stream baby watching goes down however you can check in on April her mate Oliver and their baby Tajiri via the Giraffe Cam and the April the Giraffe page on the Animal Adventure Park's website.
