April will raise the calf naturally.
"There is a significant amount of belly movement and tail raising".
Sunday's message reported April wasn't feeling well earlier in the day. According to Animal Adventure, this will be her fourth time giving birth. Park zookeepers believe activists who disagree with animals being kept in captivity were responsible for the video being pulled.
"I did not think this many people would get a kick out of this", the mother wrote of her parody, "Clearly we live an exciting life over here in the Dietrich household". The long-necked lovers were seen interacting over his pen for a few moments.
Like any birth it was definitely a messy affair, but it's especially worth watching if you've been expectantly tuning in to the live stream of April the giraffe.
The zoo said Friday April appears "a little more on edge" and is "not being as lovely as usual". Patch says the natural curiosity surrounding giraffes and their birthing process has been a huge factor in drawing crowds. April is still pregnant, and there is only one official site providing the live feed. Thousands upon thousands of commenters voiced their frustration on Facebook and YouTube, and the stream was restored within an hour or so. Active labor will begin with the onset of April's mucus plug followed by the appearance of hooves.
Giraffe calves are usually about six feet tall and 150 pounds.
When the baby will be born is still anybody's guess.
