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!!
