Someone built an alert for when April the giraffe goes into labor

The Denver Zoo welcomed a baby giraffe Tuesday as the nation anxiously awaits the arrival of another giraffe across the country. In there, is an approximately 6 foot tall, 150 pound calf now weeks after his or her due date! In fact, mother Kipele was using birth control at the time of her impregnation, and resisted initial attempts for veterinarians to perform ultrasounds.

The waiting game continues as millions wait for April the giraffe to give birth at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville.

The feed went live on February 24, 2017, but so far April has not given birth.

"The world waits on edge ... and April smirks with a mouthful of cud", the zoo wrote. But now it's back up, and more people than ever are interested.

On Thursday morning, the park issued an update that pretty much said, "nothing to see here, please move along".

April's pregnancy was catapulted into global headlines last week after YouTube briefly yanked the zoo's live stream following complaints by animal activists that it violated the site's policies concerning "nudity and sexual content".

Animal Adventure Park posted a new photo of April Saturday along with a message, saying in part: "Pregnancy belly has never looked so good!"

Apparently giraffe births are all the rage.

Giraffes have a gestation period of 15 months. "We were already able to replenish our giraffe plasma bank, just in case of any emergencies with our herd".

"Why? Could be many reasons", the Facebook post said.

The zoo has also launched a GoFundMe campaign to offset the annual care of the giraffes and has also established a website for April. When she gives birth- and it could be anytime now, according to Jordan Patch, the park's owner- it will be her fourth calf.
