The days of waiting for April the Giraffe to give birth to another baby are over. The team at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpusville, NY has decided to place April into retirement. This retirement means that she will also be going on birth control.

April is 17-years-old and the mother of five offspring. It was February of 2017 when April became the internet sensation that she is, as the world waiting for the birth of her 4th calf.

Gestation for a giraffe takes approximately 15 months. Have you watched any of the April live webcams or videos? It's okay, we did too.
