“The average gestation period for a giraffe is 15 months, but April likes to go 16, 17, 18, 19 months,” Patch cautioned.
April the giraffe is pregnant again and I don’t want to hear anything about it until it’s actually born. Last year I waited nearly two months for that giraffe to give birth

“Every calf counts,” Patch said of April’s newest pregnancy news. “Giraffe populations have declined by 40 percent in the past 30 years, so every calf born in a captive management program means something.”
