In February, a live feed of an expectant mother giraffe, April, was launched by Animal Adventure Park in New York with sponsor Toys R Us.
On April 15, all the waiting finally paid off and Twitter cheered her on as she gave birth in front of a captive online audience. The footage of the birth has already had over 14 million views.
Animal Adventure Park is holding a naming contest for the baby giraffe. Really hoping the internet doesn’t name it Giraffey McGiraffeface.
Happy early Mother’s Day, April!
