    Zoo owner: April the giraffe's baby is 'very independent'

    April 17, 2017


    HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. (AP) - The long-awaited offspring of internet sensation April the Giraffe is being described as strong and "very independent."

    The owner of Animal Adventure Park in upstate New York 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.

    Jordan Patch says he was so excited that he was shaking when he made the calls to assemble the delivery team.

    snipped

    Patch says April is "recovering perfectly" following the delivery.

    April the Giraffe's Live Stream to End This Week Following Minor Injury

    April 18, 2017


    Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, recently announced on Facebook that it plans to pull the live stream of the mom giraffe’s pen sometime this week, just days after she gave birth to her eagerly awaited baby boy.

    According to News 10, one of the reasons behind this decision is the reaction to an injury April sustained on Monday. The 15-year-old giraffe twisted her leg, causing her to noticeably favor one of her other long stalks. The zoo said this type of injury is normal for a long-legged animal and is the equivalent to a human rolling their ankle, uncomfortable but temporary.

    On Tuesday, Animal Adventure Park announced that the mother giraffe’s stance and gait was almost back to normal, but this hasn’t stopped an onslaught of concerned emails.

    “We appreciate concern but the bogging down of email servers and other platforms is the exact reason the giraffe cam will need to be pulled,” the zoo responded on Facebook. “While we appreciate the concern, it is interfering with normal park operations and preparation for opening; at a period when our resource of time is limited and cannot be hindered.”

    From the beginning, the zoo had planned to pull the live stream about one week after the birth, so keepers could focus on the calf’s care. Now, the live stream will likely end a little earlier, probably between Wednesday or Friday, so the staff can work on preparing the animals and the facility for the park’s reopening for the season in May without distraction.

    Aside from the slight injury, April and her calf continue to do well and are bonding beautifully. Even dad, who is usually not part of the child rearing process, has shown interest in getting to know the new arrival.

    'Giraffe mom' meets giraffe mom, bringing internet's giraffe obsession full circle

    April 19, 2017


    HARPURSVILLE, New York (FOX 13) - The internet's two most beloved moms met in person on Tuesday, with both newborn baby boys in tow.

    That's right. Erin Dietrich, who earned the nickname "Giraffe Mom" after posting a hilarious viral spoof of April the Giraffe, finally got to meet her fellow internet sensation in the flesh.

    Inside Edition flew Dietrich and her baby boy, Porter, up to Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York from their home in South Carolina.

    Dietrich met the park's owner, Jordan Patch, and even hand-fed April some lettuce and carrots. The moms and babies posed for pictures and seemed to hit it off.

    “We’re buddies; we’re companions," Dietrich told Inside Edition. "She just doesn’t know it.”

    As the petite South Carolina mom stood next to the massive giraffe, you'd never know the two would have so much in common. The live stream of April's long pregnancy helped Dietrich get through hers, she said. (Although, Dietrich had her baby much sooner than April did).

    Baby Tajiri is 6 months old today – more little hooves on the way?

    POSTED 4:20 PM, OCTOBER 15, 2017, BY [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], UPDATED AT 08:05PM, OCTOBER 15, 2017

    The son of giraffes April and Oliver came into the world six months ago today.

    According to a post by Animal Adventure Park, Baby Taj now stands almost 10' tall. His personality is "one of independence, a nod to his father Oliver - though his genuine demeanor with guests and keepers is a strong echo of mom, April's, personality."

    Tatu will be transferred to PA. I really wish they didn't have to separate 'families' but understand why it's done.
