On Monday the Animal Adventure Park announced there were significant changes in April the giraffe. The update stated that the changes were significant enough to warrant a visit from the veterinarian. At this point, the AAP is not stating that April is in active labor, but will continue to provide updates. April is a 15-year-old Reticulated giraffe whose pregnancy and subsequent birth is being live streamed by the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York. The live stream began in January, but it didn’t go viral until the middle of February.
April is STILL pregnant. Zookeepers say there is increased discharge and lack of interest in food and she appears to be a bit out of character which they think means her time to give birth is approaching.
What we know for sure? This was NOT an April Fools Joke.
