It’s Another Boy for April the Giraffe!

Have you heard the news?  Yes, April the giraffe had her baby this morning!  Isn’t he adorable?  I was up watching the live cam late last night and into the wee hours of the morning as April began pacing and licking a lot.  Her behaviour was definitely off.  I slept a few hours and then got up just prior to the hooves appearing so was very happy to witness baby G’s birth live on YouTube.  This birth moved along a little faster than her birth of Tajiri back in 2017.  But April did just fine (she’s a pro at this) and she is just the best mother.  Baby G is very curious and nursing well and April is very attentive to his needs. He has shown a lot of interest in his daddy, Oliver, who resides in the next pen. It will be pure joy to watch Baby G grow over the coming days and weeks.  

I so love this sweet little giraffe family!!  Congratulations to April, Oliver, and the wonderful people at Animal Adventure Park!  

And now, I think I will go catch up on some much-needed sleep!!

  1. Aw! I’m glad you got to see it after all of that waiting & watching! It’s good to hear that both mom & baby are doing well. I was hoping you’d let us know when it happened since I haven’t been following April this time. Thanks Gail!
