"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.

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.
