Giraffe-Themed Socks for the Serious Animal Lover

Apr 07, 2017, 02:07

April the giraffe's handlers at Animal Adventure Park in NY on Thursday, April 6th reported "a significant change in April's shape".

"Allysa's morning report is of significant change in April's shape".

Zookeepers said April's body/belly is "much less beach balled", and her "bulges have streamlined". Perhaps suggesting a new position of calf. So, Helms says they "hoofed it" over to the giraffe exhibit where she took out her phone just in time to see the giraffe's water break and catch the birth on camera.

There's been a lot of speculation of how long April has been in labor and if she's actually contracting. April's backend has some significant "bulging" occurring. What they do know is that she and her mate, Oliver, exhibited mating behaviors around October 2015.

As the world watches every minute of April's impending arrival, the keeping team put out a 3am (BST) bulletin to show that all is well - even though April is becoming increasingly distracted.

The live stream of April and her impending delivery is still a popular attraction on many web sites. Day and night, April is seen in her stall chewing her cud, eating hay, and visiting with Oliver.

However, the vet says he's not concerned by the fact that April has not yet given birth, and he says viewers shouldn't be anxious either. Patch has openly given up on making predictions and is waiting like everyone else for April to give birth.

In case you missed it, Animal Adventure Park owner Jordan Patch offered a few updates and FAQ's on April last week.

When April is in active labor, her tail will raise up from the base, making a rounded hump.

So after more than six weeks of waiting and watching, the internet is about to meet its favorite giraffe calf - we think!

"April's website, aprilthegiraffe.com, includes a link for buying apparel from baby clothing to adult-sized hoodies imprinted with a giraffe's head and "#Aprils View Crew" along with the park's name and location.

The Dallas Zoo broadcast a giraffe birth live on the Animal Planet in 2015.

"It really shouldn't be much longer, I'm just not going to tell you my guesstimate anymore", Dr. Tim added.
