The calf was born at about 9:55 a.m. Saturday. Its hooves were visible for more than two hours before that.

Watch the birth below (happens about 2 hours, 28 minutes into the clip):

We're still waiting on official stats, but the calf is expected to weigh about 150 pounds and stand 6 feet tall.

Despite the long wait, the zoo says April is perfectly healthy. She is 15 years old, and this is her fourth calf.

Animal Adventure Park is located in Harpursville, New York, about 180 miles northwest of New York City.
