April the Giraffe could be hours away from giving birth

Giraffe in Taronga Zoo

As previously mentioned by Animal Adventure Park, the calf, which will be April's fourth but first with his fifth partner Oliver, will weigh around 150 pounds and will be about 6 feet tall at birth.

On Monday, the zoo said April's growing belly had become still, indicating a possible "calm before the storm". The Livestream Giraffe Cam has been up for two months yet no calf has appeared until now.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been tuning into the live Animal Adventure Park giraffe cam in anticipation of the birth, which should be coming relatively soon. One sign of active labor is when the giraffe's water breaks. Tragedy can strike, and we are prepared, but have faith we will have a safe and sound delivery and calf.

Mashable also mentioned that Animal Adventure Park had been reaping the benefits of the viral pregnant giraffe. Giraffes give birth in a standing position. Animal Adventure felt this was a good way to keep those who wanted to follow along with April informed.

Why is April's mate, Oliver, kept separate from April?

This will be Animal Adventure Park's first giraffe calf.

The park seemed more hopeful about on March 29 about April giving birth when they noted in the morning and evening updates how far April has progressed with mammary changes. All the money will be used to feed, house and care for the giraffes. Animal Adventure Park's live cam will stream five days after April delivers the calf, but the footage will shut down so the park can prepare for its opening day scheduled in May. Male giraffes also are not part of the child rearing process.

Giraffes are pros and hiding their labor, but Patch explains there are certain signs he looks for that he believes are her contractions.

What if YouTube removes the video again?

When the public submit names for the baby?

Once the calf is born, the zoo will hold a contest to name it.

The article read: "It just can't be a coincidence that April the Giraffe, the perpetually pregnant and viral video star, is named April and that April Fools' Day is coming up". However when in human care that can extend to 20-27 years old.

When April goes into labor, the birth could happen in 30 to 60 minutes. Giraffe Factoid: Baby Talk To readdress what to expect!

How long has April been with Animal Adventure Park?

The keepers will go in with April occasionally to clean her pen and give her treats (but not Oliver).
