HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. — It’s a… baby giraffe! April’s little one has finally arrived!

PREVIOUS SATURDAY STORY: “We are in labor 100%,” Animal Adventure Park officials said in a Facebook Live video Saturday morning.

You know what that means, April will be giving birth any moment.  Stay tuned!

NOTE: Nature isn’t always pretty, so please be prepared for anything.

Animal Adventure Park began livestreaming on YouTube on February 23 as April prepared to give birth, drawing worldwide attention.

Newswatch 16’s Peggy Lee visited April back in February.

This will be April’s fourth calf and the first for the father, Oliver.

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.

The video was initially removed after animal rights activists flagged the videos as “sexually explicit” before being restored.

The zoo has also launched a GoFundMe campaign to offset the annual care of the giraffes and has also established a website for April.
