HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. — Everything is normal and well with April the giraffe as the wait for the birth of her fourth calf dragged on, zookeepers with Animal Adventure Park said Friday.
“The only real drastic changes we will see from here is active labor,” officials wrote on Facebook. “(Not) much more change/development can occur.”
On Thursday night, officials said the giraffe had light discharge and her appetite was so-so.
The zoo began livestreaming the giraffe on Feb. 23 and she has gained worldwide attention as several thousand people watch daily, waiting to see the birth.
This will be April’s fourth calf and the first for Oliver. The calf will weigh around 150 pounds and be approximately 6 feet tall at birth, zoo officials said.
