10 Fun Facts About Giraffs, Paint at the Park, ,

April, the giraffe, has stolen every one’s hearts last year while people spend hours watching the live feed as she grows a new baby giraffe.

Here are 10 fun facts, according to the zoo and National Geographic, as we await what may be the most-anticipated giraffe birth in history .

1. Giraffe pregnancies last about 15 months or 453 to 464 days.

2. A baby giraffe is called a calf. An adult female giraffe is called a cow and a male is called a bull. 

3. The front hooves will come out first followed by the snout.

4. A baby giraffe is born at a whopping 100 to 150 pounds and stands 6 feet tall.

5. Mother giraffes wean the baby giraffes for 6 to 10 months. 

6. They grow up so fast, literally. A baby giraffe begins walking about 30 minutes to an hour after birth. The first steps are vital for it to nurse from the mother. They can even run within the first day.

7. Baby giraffes nurse for nine to 12 months but can begin eating solids like leaves, hay, romaine lettuce and carrots after four months, much like humans.

8. Male giraffes will stay with their mothers for 15 months before leaving to form a group with other males. Females leave their mothers around 18 months but continue to live with their herd.

9. In the wild, giraffes often give deliver in the same "calving ground" they were born because the herd continues to use the same land for several generations.

10. Their lifespan in the wild is 10 to 15 years but they can live to 27 in captivity.
