Likely a exhausted, if delighted mom (if we know moms): Following a 15-month pregnancy, she delivered her 129-pound, 5-feet-9-inch tall bundle of joy on April 15 in front of an audience of over 1.2 million watching on Animal Adventure Park's live stream.

"I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention", he said.
The unnamed calf weighed in at 133 pounds, posting an increase of 2 pounds during a period of 24 hours. Oliver is only allowed inside with April a little at a time and under close supervision. Write to us in the Comments Section or on our Facebook page.
