It has been seven months since April the giraffe gave birth to a cute little calf, later named Tajiri. It seems that his mother has been for a while, ready to be pregnant again.
The owner of the Animal Adventure Park, Jordan Patch, was interviewed at ‘Good Morning America’ on 9 November and he said that he will neither confirm, nor deny the fact that April might be pregnant. He also fueled people’s enthusiasm, adding a rhetorical question: ‘Are we ready for another giraffe cam, world? You tell me’.
65 Days of Streaming on the Giraffe Cam
This spring, April the giraffe made everyone on social media anxious for waiting for the birth of her calf, watching the giraffe cam for 65 days. April gave birth to a healthy little boy on 15 April, and millions of people watched the moment Tajiri was brought into the world at the park in Harpursville, New York.
The calf’s name comes from Swahili and it means hope, according to Jordan Patch, who revealed his name on ‘GMA’ in May. He also added that the calf’s name is also the meaning of confidence, as the calf appears to be ‘very, very confident’.
At ‘Good Morning America’, Jordan Patch stated that young Tajiri is almost 10-feet tall and that April has been a great mother so far, being very protective. But April is also letting Tajiri explore his surroundings, so that he can become as independent as his father is.
The owner of the Animal Adventure Park said that he was positively surprised of the fact that the baby giraffe has grown healthy and everything went smoothly since he was born. He added that it was a blessing for Tajiri to progress in his growth, while also seeing hundreds of thousands of visitors, all of it was ‘remarkably easy and textbook’.
We’re all happy to see mother April and her baby calf healthy and we’ll keep our fingers crossed for a future baby brother or sister for Tajiri!
