April the Giraffe's baby has a birthday soon

April 04, 2018 - 9:02 AM

HARPURSVILLE, N.Y. - A giraffe whose birth became an internet sensation is turning a year old this month.

Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, is throwing a birthday party April 15 for Tajiri (tah-JEER'-ee), the son of April and Oliver.

April's pregnancy drew more than 232 million YouTube live views during a seven-week period.

Tajiri means "hope" in Swahili. He has grown to nearly 10 feet tall (3 metres). He was 5 feet 9 inches (1.75 metres) when he was born.

He'll get a special birthday cake that's healthy for giraffes.

Once again, the park near Binghamton will share the happy occasion with viewers around the world through its Giraffe Cam .
