Giraffe born at Toledo zoo won't go on exhibit for a while

There is another notification now, let's hope it is about a safely arrived baby giraffe so I can take a nap.

When the giraffe is ready to give birth, she will do so standing in her stall.

The owner of the Animal Adventure Park started the live stream so that people could keep up with April's pregnancy while the zoo is closed in the off-season.

The park at the center of the giraffe live birth viral sensation says that they still expect a delivery 'very soon'. "I finished the song within 15 minutes".

I don't think I'll ever hear the end of that". "We've been on a good run", Johnson said. And I felt like I handle situations better out here than other places.

So for another Sunday, we will all wait with April!

But - there WAS a giraffe born this week and it was on camera! April has never lost a calf nor experienced a stillborn. However, with human intervention, giraffes can live to 20 to 27 years old.

This will be April's fourth calf and the first for Oliver.

"The fact that you're gonna get to witness the miracle of birth from an animal that you really don't get to see give birth - that's neat".

Tune in to the April the Giraffe livestream and all you'll see is a giraffe in an enclosure - yet she's been captivating people worldwide. You can sign up for the text updates on April the Giraffe's website and take a break from watching the live cam day and night in fear of missing out on the big moment. So because of fears of inbreeding, the calf will be relocated to another facility once the weaning process is over. Keeping families together increases the risk of incestuous mating which would weaken the next generation's genetics and reduce the species' chances of survival. There is only an estimated 1,500 of those in the wild and they are one of the most endangered of the nine sub-species of giraffe. The most common subspecies is the Rothschild's. Labor lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days. "Typically a giraffe can eat up to 75lbs of food per day", said officials in the online post.

Those "things" on their heads are called ossicones.
