She takes a bow; she knows the world is watching.”This will be April’s fourth baby, but it is the first giraffe calf to be born at this small-town zoo, so park officials decided to make the most of it.“We are showing all signs of end of pregnancy but no active labor at this time,” Jordan Patch, the owner of the Harpursville, New York (population 3,543), park tells Us Weekly, noting that giraffe’s instinct is to hide any signs of labor.On Wednesday, April was a “happy camper,” after spending some morning time outside, he told Us.
