After much deliberation, @corey.dwyer.aap and myself have come up with the name we want if "Allysa's Choice" wins. Wanna know what it is? You've got to vote and make it win. I promise, it's a name we're proud of. #aprilthegiraffe #zookeeper #babygiraffe

This was a very exciting month for zoo giraffe births. While the world was waiting for April the Giraffe to have her baby, another calf was born at Chester Zoo (video above). One of the challenges of veterinary medicine is the broad species variation that we encounter. This is exemplified in the area of reproduction, gestation, and birth. However there are some basic stages and principles that can be generalised across many species. In my reproduction class, I learned about the different stages of labour.

Stage 1 involves cervical dilation, and foetal positioning for expulsion. The mother may be restless, and urinating frequently.

Stage 2 starts with rupture of the chorioallantois and ends in delivery of the calf.

Stage 3 ends when foetal membranes are passed in their entirety (delivery of the placenta).

Here's an update on my giraffe project! She just needs her back 2 legs and then I can begin applying the paper mache clay! Sorry again that the photo is kinda dingy. I dream of having a gorgeous and well lit home studio someday with enough space to build all sorts of animals! You can follow along with my progress on my IG Stories! I'm also asking suggestions for her name, so send me an IG message with your idea!

Recently, a giraffe was born in a small pen while tens of thousands of people watched online. Thus begins his life as an object of curiosity in a zoo -- the same fate that befell his mother. He will almost certainly never know freedom. Will he know what his is missing? We don’t know, but we know that giraffes are meant to be roaming free on a savannah, not locked in a cage and on display for people’s amusement.

MILESTONE MOMENT: April the giraffe and her baby went outside together for the FIRST time @animaladventurepark. The calf, who still needs a name, was nursing on mom in the yard on a beautiful day. Find out how you can help name the baby on #abc13 #aprilthegiraffe #babyboy #babyanimals #giraffes

Today is the day the #aprilthegiraffe cam will be shut down as #AnimalAdventurePark prepares for its upcoming season. We visited April and her calf earlier this week to see how they are settling into their new routine.

4:30 means it is time for the camera to come down. Thank you for joining us in this journey... stay tuned we have so much more in store! #aprilthegiraffe #giraffewatch2017 #animaladventurepark

When ya get that Friday night feelin' 😎I felt super Floridian today, y'all. Alex took me on a date to Wekiva Island for some kayaking/gator taco action, and we saw the cutest otter splashing around and the most terrifying gator who had a very large bird for lunch. (IT WAS SO SCARY.) I love me some neat-ure. #nerdalert 🤓 Oh, and how about this custom giraffe illustration for the rad crew at @draftagency? The sunnies were totally inspired by my favorite @dangshades! Can you spot (heh) the Draft logo? 😉 #giraffeprint #giraffelife #watercolor_art #watercolorartist #giraffepainting #watercolorgiraffe
