April The Giraffe Changes To Expect Before Active Labor And Calf Hooves Are Seen

There is no question that April the giraffe is approaching active labor, but what exactly does that mean? What is the difference between early labor, active labor and delivery? April is a pregnant, 15-year-old Reticulated giraffe who lives at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York with her five-year-old mate Oliver “Ollie.” Since January, April’s every action has been live streamed online leading up to one momentous event: the birth of her calf. While April is showing signs of being in early labor, the real action begins once calf hooves are seen, and active labor begins. Here are some of the changes April the giraffe will experience before we are in the heart of the birthing process with the appearance of hooves and a baby calf on the scene. You may watch the giraffe cam live streaming in the video player below.
