Upstate NY’s Animal Adventure Park is Live Streaming a Giraffe Birth [WATCH]
Ever wonder what it's like for a giraffe to give birth? Well, wonder no more and watch the live stream ...
A 15 year old giraffe by the name of April at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville NY is getting ready to give birth to her 5th calf and the staff at the park are live streaming the whole event for the entire world to see!
The staff at the Animal Adventure Park is expecting April to give birth at any moment though, I have been keeping an eye on this feed for a couple of days now and have yet to see any action go down.
According to NYUpstate.com Giraffe's give birth while standing so that the calf can drop to the ground. That dropping to the ground is supposed to sort of wake the calf up like doctors used to do to babies by smacking them on the behind to get them to cry.
The actual labor should take several hours resulting in the birth of a calf that is expected to weigh 150 pounds and stand about 6 feet tall ... at birth!
The whole things is kind of a BIG deal for the Animal Adventure Park seeing as the giraffe is an endangered species.
Good Luck April!
