Animal Adventure Park, in Harpursville, New York, announced the latest pregnancy on the Today Show Wednesday, reportedlyending weeks of speculation.” In an effort to avoid the impatient chaos of last year, the zoo refused to reveal April’s exact due date, instead telling viewers Tajiri will become a big brother some time in March.
