The world is watching the live stream and waiting for April the giraffe to share her stall with her giraffe baby, but what happens after April gives birth?
April's keepers said her back end has "some significant bulging occurring".
Animal lovers around the world are counting down to the arrival of April the giraffe's unborn baby and are probably wondering what to expect after its much-anticipated birth. The park said that other parks have told them that sometimes the mothers will feast just before the birth.
April's vet has said there isn't enough data on giraffe pregnancies to determine exactly when April could go into labor. "We continue to watch and wait". "We hope for launch sequence", they continued. This is after a few days of picking at grain and hay. No, I can not induce her, nor should we want to. Regarding the calf's gender, Animal Adventure Park said their ultrasound equipment could not determine if April the giraffe will be having a boy or a girl.
Meanwhile, a rare Rothschild's giraffe was born this week in Cheshire, England - a "precious moment" that was captured on CCTV, in what the Chester Zoo called "stunning" footage. "Made possible in part by their sponsorship, Animal Adventure Park will be donating $25,000 to the Giraffe Conservation Foundation!"

"Please April for my own sanity have this baby soon", wrote one dedicated viewer on Facebook. "We will get to see the giraffes' response today!"
