On March 29, 2017, the Animal Adventure Park (AAP) and Toys R Us shared a behind-the-scenes video featuring a tour of the giraffe barn where April and Oliver live. Owned by Jordan Patch, April became a viral sensation when he began live streaming her giraffe stall on Feb. 10. April is a 15-year-old reticulated giraffe, and she is 15-months pregnant. She lives at the park with her five-year-old boyfriend, Oliver. The giraffe barn tour comes as hundreds of thousands are watching the live cam where April is expected to go into active labor at any moment. Patch took the time to address common questions surrounding the giraffe’s housing environment and even provided a look at the giraffe loft. You can watch the video where Jordan Patch chats and leads the giraffe barn tour in the video below.
The video tour gives viewers who’ve watched the live giraffe cam a better, more comprehensive look at April’s and Oliver’s temporary housing. Though April is a sweet-natured giraffe, Oliver is a bull, and the giraffe stalls have been designed with safety as a priority. There are feeding windows where if the Animal Adventure Park staff need to keep their distance from the giraffes, they can interact with them safely. April will give birth to her calf from within her stall. You can watch the live giraffe cam that streams from the Animal Adventure Park in the video playlist below. Also included in the playlist are pertinent and important AAP videos, such as other Toys R Us footage, visits with Dr. Tim, chats, and introductions to some of the park’s other animals.
It’s been quite a while since the Inquisitr broke the news about April’s pregnancy and live cam. We’ve enjoyed the ride along with the world and are excited to state that April’s calf’s birth truly is imminent.
There have been many exciting changes not only with April the giraffe but for the Animal Adventure Park as a whole. The zoo announced they are expanding, building, and they will have new animal exhibits with endangered animals. Meanwhile, the world is glued to the live cam and is on official baby watch as all signs for active labor are a go.

Now that the official giraffe baby watch has begun, many people are worried they will miss April’s active labor, delivery, and the birth of her calf.

Fortunately, there is a way for those who have to leave their home, go to work or simply be away from their computers or devices to receive notifications when April’s active labor begins. You can find out how to get notifications from the giraffe watch app below.
