April the Giraffe is Pregnant
April the Giraffe is pregnant again. The news has been officially confirmed by the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. April the Giraffe is pregnant with her fifth child. She recently gave birth to son Tajiri on 15th April this year.
The Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch made the announcement of April the giraffe being pregnant. He shared that,
The results are in and we are having a baby.
Even though the exact date of delivery has not been disclosed, it is estimated to be somewhere in Spring. Normally, giraffes remain pregnant for up to 15 months. But April was 16 months pregnant last time she gave birth to Tajiri. April the giraffe is again pregnant with Oliver, who was also the father to her last son Tajiri. The gender of the newborn coming is still not out, and probably won’t be till the calf is born.
The entire last year, April the giraffe remained fairly popular. Almost 1.2 million people watched her give birth to her son Tajiri. Since April has become a hot topic, the Animal Adventure Park is live-streaming April’s enclosure on YouTube. Jordan Patch said that,
Our team of zoologists certainly know the connection she’s had. The camera is up, and rolling, and they’re watching right now.
The park is going to keep people updated with April’s pregnancy on social media. Patch even believes that this will help get attention to the issue that giraffes are vulnerable to extinction. April the giraffe and her previous pregnancy has drawn significant attention towards the community. Patch informed that,
April’s prior pregnancy facilitated an immeasurable amount of education and appreciation for giraffes. We’re very proud of our captive management and propagation program and eager to continue doing all we can to help bring this species awareness and tangible results towards conservation.
People are super thrilled to hear about April’s pregnancy again. Responses, notes and even memes are flooding the social media as usual.
