Giraffe cam with April, baby to end

Giraffe cam with April, baby to end

The owner of Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, says the not-yet-named baby boy was on its feet within an hour after its birth Saturday - and galloping around its mother within three hours. However, that will soon change.

Unfortunately, those who have enjoyed watching April over the last two months will only have a few more days to do so, as Animal Adventure Park is taking the Giraffe Cam down on Friday, April 21.

In a Facebook message, Mr Patch told the park's followers: "What I found astonishing was the meaning and goal behind every move April made during delivery".

The zoo also said April was recovering well after suffering a leg injury that prompted caretakers to stop her livestream.

Animal Adventure Park is also holding an online contest, allowing fans to suggest names for the newborn calf.

More than 1.2 million viewers watched the birth in real time thanks to Animal Adventure's live stream.

April has a small twist of her leg and has been favoring it when she walks.

The male calf born to April the giraffe is nursing well and has had his first vet checkup.

The zoo began livestreaming from April's enclosure in February.

After months of waiting for April the giraffe to give birth, the only thing left to do now is give that baby a name.

"April meticulously and gracefully cleaned out his mouth and nostrils to remove any mucous that could cause obstruction, all made possible by her long tongue". People around the world have been tuning in daily. Her birth was broadcast to an online audience of more than a million viewers.

Interest in the new arrival is likely to continue as Animal Adventure plan to hold a public vote to name the new arrival. A GoFundMe fundraiser page that initially set a goal of $50,000 sat at more than $134,000 by Saturday night. The upstate NY zoo plans to hold a contest to name him. There's 200 animals out there that need our help, feeding and our care.
