The new calf's vital statistics were not announced, but newborn giraffes usually weigh around 150 pounds (68.04 kilograms) and are about 6 feet (1.83 meters) tall at birth.
The mama giraffe tenderly licked her calf, which began to slowly pick its head up from the floor of the pen.
Less than an hour after the calf was born, it started to stand up on its legs while April assisted him. Internet explorers around the world were able to watch the astonishing capabilities of nature via live stream, and the zookeepers at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, say that they'll be holding a contest to determine the new giraffe's name.
Mother, April, has also been described by the park's owner Jordan Patch as being "very protective and encouraging" of her calf.
Fans can still watch the live stream, where the newborn calf now wanders around the pen with his mother.

Now that April the giraffe has finally given birth, Animal Adventure Park is letting the internet help name the male calf.
The privately owned zoo began livestreaming from April's enclosure in February. On the day April welcomed her baby boy to the world, over 14 million people tuned in, with 1.2 million from around the world watching the actual birth as it happened.
"Here's how this promotion works - we want your help choosing the name of April's new baby calf". April's calf is the first one for Animal Adventure Park.
April will raise the calf for six to 10 months, the park told The New York Times. A GoFundMe fundraiser page that initially set a goal of $50,000 sat at almost $139,000 by Sunday night. ABC7NY noted that April was pregnant for 16 months, just over the normal gestation time for a giraffe. The zoo is in Harpursville, New York, about 130 miles (209 kilometers) northwest of New York City.
