Physical, Behavoral Changes Point To Giraffe Baby's Birth

April update: 'You should start getting excited'

April, the now-famous-and-very-pregnant giraffe at Animal Adventure Park, might give birth soon.

Fans of the April the Giraffe live stream have been searching online for more assurances, and for which the Animal Adventure Park has been giving generously via their official Facebook account.

"We would be shocked to get through the weekend without our newest addition", Jordan Patch wrote in his daily update on Animal Adventure's Facebook page update.

On Wednesday morning the update read, "We will not confirm active labor, but we do have discharge that would suggest the count down to calf has begun!" "We are still working on the text alert system, as the source we had did not pan out". April's videos and live-feed have received millions of views.

Contractions: Stomach movement should come from the calf jostling inside, and the mother will straighten her neck and show movement in her hips, according to the station.

This is April's fourth calf, and the first for her 5-year-old mate Oliver.

These are all signs she will go into labor soon, the vets said, noting followers should not be anxious.

Giraffes can be in labor anywhere from two to six hours.

What if YouTube removes the video again? Patch continued, "A calf is imminent... and I really mean it this time". Due to the long gestation period, giraffes won't often deliver another calf for another 16 months - maybe more in some instances. It still is not clear what caused the outage that lasted for about three hours. The calf is expected to weigh around 150 pounds (68 kilograms) and be about 6 feet (1.8 meters) tall at birth.

Fortunately for viewers who have waited for months to see the birth, giraffe deliveries are known for being relatively quick affairs.
