Move over Beyonce - there is a new bump in town! "I, April the pregnant giraffe, understand that you are interested in the impending birth of my calf", she "told" Today.com Tuesday. "We must remember a 6 [foot] 150 [pound] baby is performing acrobatic routines inside!"
Park representatives said there have been a lot of behaviors keeping them on their toes, but that she has not gone into active labor.
"She's progressing well in her pregnancy", he said.
First off, rude: This "thing" has a name and it is April and she is attractive. The zoo says Oliver won't spend much time with the calf.
Her home is in the USA, at Animal Adventure Park in NY. She initially resisted attempts from veterinarians to perform ultrasounds, but eventually allowed the zookeepers she interacts with every day to place the ultrasound probe on her abdomen, while veterinarians monitored and guided from another room. Keepers were able to get hands on the belly and make "contact" with baby!
"The world waits on edge. and April smirks with a mouthful of cud", the zoo wrote in its post.
The zoo has also launched a GoFundMe campaign to offset the annual care of the giraffes and has also established a website for April. But snow and ice mean no outside time for the long-necked beauty and her mate. "Remember - inside days mean extra love and treats and enrichment to keep everyone happy!" There are numerous variables in predicting a giraffe's birth, he indicated.
More than 100,000 people were following the YouTube channel on Thursday morning.
April was expected to give birth sometime in mid-February.
April's fans have stayed loyal to the live stream, waiting for the big moment. The excitement reached a fever pitch last week, when the live feed of her pen was briefly yanked off YouTube after animal rights activists complained that the video contained "nudity and sexual content".
Giraffes are born after a 15-month gestation period.
The zoo will hold an online competition to name April's calf.
During the first two years of a giraffe's life, it doubles its height to be nearly 12-feet tall.
The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is providing plasma to help the Denver Zoo's new giraffe calf, Dobby.
