Giraffe watch: Distracted April's rear end shows 'significant' bulging

The park says April the giraffe isn't late giving birth.

In previous Facebook posts, keepers chronicled significant developments that led them to believe the birth was nearing.

Express UK reports that the zookeeper was interviewed by Britain's This Morning and was asked about her thoughts regarding April's pregnancy and why she hasn't given birth yet.

"These are the three giraffe stalls so she would have been born in one of these", Cathy Ballone, of the former Catskill Game Farm, said.

On Monday, Animal Adventure said it will reveal the calf's sex via its text alert system. April has never lost a calf nor had a stillborn.

The keeper suspects that Animal Adventure Park might have gotten April's due date wrong.

Their Thursday morning update was brief, focusing on April's shape.

It's been more than a month since the park shared the news of April's impending birth with the world, via social media.

Page was quickly cut from the Trump team following reports that federal investigators were probing his ties to Russian officials. The documents were not sensitive, and Page was never accused of wrongdoing. "I also promised him a lot".

So for those serious giraffe lovers out there, Footwear News has rounded up a selection of themed sockwear - the ideal thing to wear while you're up until the wee hours of the night, glued to your computer screen watching April on YouTube. By March 23, the park reported she had become notably slower, saying that April was "in the home stretch" of her pregnancy. "She was very "with it" but then became very distracted and as Corey put it, 'would have walked right through me'".

The park posted the following update Monday morning, noting "pushing contractions" that were observed by numerous thousands of people tuning in, waiting for the birth.

Temperatures at the Adventure Park warmed enough to let the giraffes go outside. "Mostly people asking what April's birthday is, that's the most common question I'm getting, which I don't know".

Chester Zoo is celebrating two new arrivals - including the birth of a rare Rothschild's giraffe calf, who was already five-foot tall when born.

The little giraffe won't be all that little.

The 8-year-old giraffe named Orla gave birth to a baby boy at the Chester Zoo while the cameras were waiting.

The videos were initially cut short as people flagged them as "sexually explicit". Patch blamed "a handful of extremists and animal rights activists" for the interruption.
