April the giraffe to give birth on YouTube with 1 million followers

Representatives for the zoo said April and the unborn calf's condition remained unchanged from the day before and that there's "continued movement" of the calf inside its mother. But things went awry when the Animal Adventure Park in NY set up a livestream of a pregnant giraffe, April, who was due to give birth. We learned that April is 15-years-old. This will be his first calf. At birth it will weigh in at about 150 lb. and will stand at about 6' tall, Animal Adventure Park said.

The world continues to anxiously await the arrival of the baby giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park.

According to the zoo, April has been pregnant for 15 months.

This will be the the 15-year-old mom's fourth calf, and a first for her "hubby" Oliver.

A YouTube webcam has been set up so people can watch the action.

From the cat videos of yore to the Harambe memes that just won't go away, animal obsessions and the internet go hand in hand. On Sunday, the Facebook page said: "We will not announce active labour until calf hooves are visible.once we are final stages of the labour - the process is quick". According to the latest update, April has experienced frequent bouts of strong healthy kicks and the calf moves indicating everything is progressing as it should.

What if YouTube removes the video again? Keepers have documented an evening of her sides.

"We can not retain offspring, as it would lead to incestuous mating and undermine the genetics of the program and species", the zoo explained.

Animal Adventure Park started the stream on Thursday.

Those "things" on their heads are called ossicones. "That is natural behavior as males take no part in rearing their young, nor have a need for a female once she is pregnant". Many fans are suggesting names for the baby calf and a popular suggestion has been the name Patience for a girl.

They eat hay and specialized giraffe diet but love romaine lettuce and carrot treats.
