April the giraffe showing signs of contractions

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

Yet, here we are. "Our work here, our partnership with Toys R Us, is allowing us to bring that conservation effort and message to the households and schools around the world", Patch said.

It would be fitting for the long-necked beauty to give birth on April Fools' Day after all the false alarms she has thrust upon her tens of millions of admirers.

A discharge was reported earlier in the week. We are not announcing active labor at this time - as we will wait until there is NO QUESTION - to ensure our followers know to hunker down and wait!

The keepers will go in with April occasionally to clean her pen and give her treats (but not Oliver). Her first livestream that was launched in February could have been the 13 month mark, which is why she started to show some signs of labor. He said if they can get it set up soon, that fans will be able to sign up for notifications when April is set to deliver. "The ideal ending. April - waited for April!" they wrote. The latest update, which came on Thursday, March 30, stated that April's behavior "is very off from normal demeanor".

Well now, according to zookeepers at Animal Adventure Park in upstate NY, the time has finally come. This will also be the Animal Adventure Park's first giraffe calf.

More than 200,000 people were watching the giraffe cam Saturday afternoon.

April has even become so popular that some are wondering if the whole pregnancy is giant park conspiracy- especially given her timely name.

The little giraffe won't be all that little.

Not yet. When the baby does arrive, it will be 150 pounds and 6 feet tall.
