Warning: like most live mammal births, it's kind of messy. Veterinarians at Animal Adventure Park has been posting daily updates on their Facebook page. A logo on the feed quickly changed from ToysRUs to BabiesRUs following the birth. Meanwhile, other viewers expressed their excitement about the birth through social media with hilarious giraffe memes.

The calf arrived on the day income taxes are traditionally due in the USA (though this year they're due on April 18), so get your tax-related names ready for the eventual online naming contest. A naming contest will be held. Oliver, April's partner is five. Its hooves were visible for more than two hours before that.

"There you have it guys, we have a baby", he said.
Americans Still Want to See Trump's Tax Returns

While we were waiting for April to give birth another giraffe in Denver, Kipele, gave birth to an oops baby they are calling Dobby.
The park revealed on Instagram just a few short hours after the birth that April had delivered a bouncing baby boy.
The park is now closed to the public and will open in mid-May.
"Instead of local or regional we're global", said Cortney Whalen, a spokeswoman for zoo owner Jordan Patch.
