They captivated the world last year and now many are wondering what's next for April, Oliver and Tajiri the giraffe at Animal Adventure Park.

Park owner Jordan Patch said he and his staff are working to keep Tajiri in the family but they need to make some changes to the park to accomodate him as he grows.

He says there is no way the park would be able to make a separate giraffe area by October of this year. That means they are exploring options with the Giraffe Species Survival Program for a facility to take Tajiri on a loan.

The park would hope to have him back when the expansion is complete. April the giraffe reconnected with Oliver in October of 2017, and she may be pregnant. Animal Adventure has sent out stool samples to St. Louis Zoo and hope to have results by the end of May.
