  • Allysa Swilley, a zoologist and head giraffe keeper with April

He finally emerged on April 15, weeks after Animal Adventure Park first began broadcasting from April's stall, promising viewers she was close to giving birth.

The long-necked sensation netted a massive fanbase over the course of her 15-month pregnancy earlier this year, scores of them eagerly following her journey on a social media livestream set up by the Harpursville zoo.

It's been seven months since millions tuned into a live stream of April's calf, Tajiri, being born.

Trump's comments have provoked concern that he may improperly influence the US Department of Justice to block the deal. Then he added: "I do feel you should have as many news outlets as you can - especially since so many are fake".


On Thursday's "Good Morning America" broadcast, Patch said April might be pregnant again.

The zoo wrote in an October Facebook post that April "has been cleared for another pregnancy and has our blessing to allow nature to take its course".

The park sold $20 "Hello Baby" tote bags, $16 "April's View Crew" T-shirts and a $50 three-pack of giraffe prints.

Patch has been surprised that everything has gone so smoothly with the baby giraffe since his birth, he said. Guests pay between $11 and $13 to see the giraffe family along with the park's 200 other animals.

As for whether he anticipates April's possible pregnancy whipping up similar hype across the internet, Patch could only speculate, saying, "Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world?" While that's certainly not a definitive answer, the fact that he didn't fully rule out the possibility has certainly given people hope that another baby giraffe is on the way.
