Animal Adventure Park in New York says, for real y’all, the countdown to calf has begun for April the Giraffe! Finally!

Park officials say in addition to bodily changes, April has been ignoring grain and is known to give birth quickly, so they kept a watchful eye overnight.

At birth, the baby giraffe is expected to weigh (on average) 150 pounds and stand 6′ tall. Park officials want to see the calf on its feet within an hour of being born and nursing within an hour or two. The park and vet team will not intervene during any of this process, but assure viewers they are nearby if needed.

Hooves crossed!
