  • April's Calf Is 'Poking Out' Say Zoo Keepers

The zoo took to their official Facebook page since February to update their almost 800,000 followers on April's condition. "Predicting these things is next to impossible". They have seen some changes in her belly size and behaviour but she is not yet in active labor.

"She didn't come running over when I got there and took a bit of coaxing to kiss the camera for carrots after my visit".

Although it is hard to determine exactly when she will go into labor, April's fourth calf is making its presence known, however.

April the giraffe's belly swelled Tuesday after weeks of being filmed by Animal Adventure Park in upstate NY.

"Keeper report is "holy smokes" baby is sticking out".

We mean, countless people have tuned into the stunning creature's live stream for about a month, hoping to discover that the 15-year-old animal has finally welcomed her calf into the world. Another sign of behavioral changes. Once the calf is born, it will remain in the barn with April until naturally weened from his or her mother. Neither she nor Oliver have been able to roam freely outdoors because of the bitter cold and heaps of snow covering the tri-state. He did say the staff has noted April's behavior "is a little off".

Some 130,000 viewers were watching the zoo's official livestream of April's pen Tuesday. Thousands upon thousands of commenters voiced their frustration on Facebook and YouTube, and the stream was restored within an hour or so.

"We would like to think we are in the home stretch - but of course keep our opinions and thoughts to ourselves (as we have been wrong before)", Animal Adventure Park said in an update on Facebook.

If you've been keeping tabs on April the Giraffe, you might be relieved to know that: "Holy smokes the baby is sticking out".

In typical fashion, the zoo added a fun fact about giraffes.
