Today could be day April the giraffe's baby is born, keeper say

April The Giraffe

April The Giraffe

However, Dr. Tim said there is no cause for concern with April. The upstate NY zoo had predicted a calf by Friday, however, that initial timeline came to a screeching halt, with the weekend passing and still no calf.

And thus, we will continue to wait.

"Keep April and our team in your positive thoughts".

According to the Animal Adventure Park Facebook Page, there is an internet outage which is causing the live stream to be down.

"I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention", he said.

"Conspiracy theory: What if the giraffe isn't pregnant and it's just an APRIL fools prank", one naysayer wrote on Twitter. Viewers are inundating the Zoo with emails about the giraffe's condition. It can be anywhere from a slow trickle of liquid to a flow of mucus. "We sure it's not on a loop?" another said.

Animal Adventure Park has a webcam in April's quarters, capturing all the moments leading up to the birth.

Zookeepers in NY are keeping a close eye on April.

Is the calf a boy or girl? The veterinarians who are in charge of the care of the animal do not yet know the sex of their offspring: the ultrasound equipment they applied did not yield results.

3/3 Evening UpdateIt was clear to all watching, the evening keeper check was cut short by April. Mating, fighting, and eating. Oliver, April's partner is five. Yes, she will have this calf when she is good and ready. April also continues to be a bit out of character.

April's popularity led to a sponsorship from Toys "R" Us, which has long featured the fictional "Geoffrey the Giraffe" as its mascot. They include movement in the hips, straightening of the neck and stomach movement, which is the calf moving inside. The feed suddenly went offline at around 5 a.m. Saturday.

The park intends to hold an online contest to name April's calf once it's born. The pregnant giraffe was expected to give birth Friday. She is now 15 years old.

With April the giraffe's February due date long past, watchers are beginning to wonder if the pregnancy was just a big, extended April Fools' joke?

The zoo has set up a text message alert system where it says it will send out the latest updates on April.

April is expecting her fourth calf.
