A competition will be held to decide on a name for the calf. The gender of the calf was not yet known, and its name was to be determined through a competition run by the park.
The privately owned zoo began livestreaming from April's enclosure in February. April has her own website and even a clothing line.
She wasn't. Giraffes are usually pregnant between 13-15 months (poor lady giraffes!). More than 1.2 million viewers, from around the world viewed the birth in real-time courtesy of Animal Adventure's live stream. People around the world have been tuning in daily, with some growing impatient as the pregnancy seemed to drag on.
Demonstrators in Chicago demand Trump release tax returns
Whether it resonates beyond Tax Day - which is typically April 15, though the IRS is pushing the deadline to Tuesday - is unclear. Trump may have seen some of the protesters Saturday as he went by vehicle from Mar-a-Lago to his golf club in West Palm Beach.
The park's livestream was briefly interrupted in February when YouTube pulled the feed after someone reported the images contained explicit material and nudity.
Although the official stats aren't in yet, April's calf likely stands about 6 feet tall and weighs between 100 and 150 pounds. Animal Adventure's owner, Jordan Patch, has described the global attention as "overwhelming" for him and his four-member staff, who also care for 200 other animals. The calf's father, Oliver, who watched the birth from an adjacent pen, is a first-time father at the age of 5.
April will raise the calf, with weaning expected to take between six to 10 months.
Syrian TV says dozens killed in blast near evacuation buses
They were being evacuated as part of a population transfer that had stalled as government representatives bickered with rebels. Syrian state TV blamed the rebels for obstructing the deal, causing thousands of evacuees to be stuck in bus depots overnight.
Once the calf is born, the Harpursville zoo in upstate NY will have a contest to name it.
The park is now closed to the public and will open in mid-May. Animal Adventure says it can't keep the offspring because that could lead to incestuous mating. Neither have we (probably because it only has 3,543 residents), but it's 15 minutes outside of Binghamton, New York.
