April the giraffe's popularity has gone far beyond anything anticipated even by the staff at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville. April has been pregnant for 15 months, the normal gestation time for a giraffe.
The zoo began streaming on February 23 on YouTube showing April preparing to give birth, drawing worldwide attraction. For example, he said on Facebook that many live-streamers have been anxious about how long it takes for April to lower herself to sit down.
"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,"Animal Adventure owner Jordan Patch told NBC". Once she is, the birth of April's calf should come pretty fast.
"Keep April and our team in your positive thoughts", the park said on Facebook. Although Animal Adventure Park's vet, Dr. Tim, said April isn't alarmingly overdue, that bun has been in the oven for about 17 months. "We encourage you to shop NOW if you want April Gear before supply becomes backordered and the sale ends".

The zoo has announced that it will conduct a naming contest after April delivers a baby to involve fans.
