April the Giraffe Live Stream 2017 Is April close to giving birth

Since February, fans of the giraffe were eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new calf and paid close attention to live streams from Animal Adventure Park and numerous outlets across the Internet, including the CBSDFW Facebook page.

The owner of Animal Adventure Park in upstate NY says the not-yet-named baby boy was on its feet within an hour after its birth Saturday - and galloping around its mother within three hours.

April the giraffe's baby boy is taking his first few steps and "nursing like a champ" at the NY zoo where he was born, but the little guy still needs a name. "Nursing strongly this morning without any concerns".

The not-yet-named male baby giraffe was running around with its mother within three hours of birth at the private zoo in Harpursville, a village 130 miles (210 kilometers) northwest of New York City. Unlike humans, giraffes are pregnant for up to 15 months!

The newborn stood up on his wobbly legs about 45 minutes after he was born. Animal Adventure's owner, Jordan Patch, has described the global attention as "overwhelming" for him and his four-member staff, who also care for 200 other animals.

Rangers aim to locate missing offense vs. Canadiens
What the Canadiens haven't seen is Pacioretty at his best in this Eastern Conference first round series , a fact he acknowledged. Alex Galchenyuk of the Canadiens, tied up by the Rangers' Kevin Hayes , lunges for a loose puck in Sunday's Game 3 at MSG.

Both mom and baby are doing "absolutely great", said Patch. The Harpursville, New York, zoo has opened a baby-naming contest on their website after the calf's Saturday, April 15, birth. The proud papa, a 5-year-old giraffe named Oliver, watched from an adjacent pen. The park will reveal the top ten names and people will be able to come back and vote again for five days. This is his first offspring.

But it is estimated that April conceived at around October 2015, which would make her pregnancy around 16 to 17 months long.

A Farmington, New Hampshire, songwriter even posted a music video on YouTube called, "I'm Going Crazy Waiting (For A Giraffe)".

The privately owned zoo began livestreaming from April's enclosure in February. The calf was born hooves-first, followed by its snout.
