HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. — April the giraffe seems is showing ‘some extra discharge and swell,’ according to an Animal Adventure Park Facebook update on Monday night.
“Just more indication of heading in the right direction.”
The zoo began streaming on Feb. 23 on YouTube showing April preparing to give birth, drawing worldwide attraction. The video was initially removed after animal rights activists flagged the videos as “sexually explicit” before being restored.
Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months, according to Animal Adventure Park. The calf will weigh around 150 pounds and be approximately 6-feet-tall at birth.
Once the calf is born, the zoo will hold a contest to name it.
