April the Giraffe Is Helping Toys 'R' Us Break the Internet

Animal Adventure Park, the upstate NY zoo live-streaming the giraffe's fourth pregnancy for tens of millions of worldwide admirers, says yes.

"Her body/belly is much less beach balled, as the bulges have streamlined", officials said on Facebook.

Mom will naturally raise the calf, with weaning could take between 6-10 months, maybe longer.

April's keepers said the baby is kicking. Some April the Giraffe fans have grown tired of watching her 24/7 live stream at Animal Adventure Park in hopes that they might get to witness the miracle of birth in real time.

The calf will be April's fourth calf and her mate Oliver's first calf. The zoo says she weight 130 pounds and stands 67 inches tall. The video was initially removed after animal rights activists flagged the videos as "sexually explicit" before being restored.

"We are very proud to have the only West African Giraffes in the United Kingdom here", said a zoo spokesperson.

April the giraffe's popularity has gone far beyond anything anticipated even by the staff at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville. April has been pregnant for 15 months, the normal gestation time for a giraffe.

The zoo began streaming on February 23 on YouTube showing April preparing to give birth, drawing worldwide attraction. For example, he said on Facebook that many live-streamers have been anxious about how long it takes for April to lower herself to sit 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,"Animal Adventure owner Jordan Patch told NBC". Once she is, the birth of April's calf should come pretty fast.

"Keep April and our team in your positive thoughts", the park said on Facebook. Although Animal Adventure Park's vet, Dr. Tim, said April isn't alarmingly overdue, that bun has been in the oven for about 17 months. "We encourage you to shop NOW if you want April Gear before supply becomes backordered and the sale ends". You can sign up for the text updates on April the Giraffe's website and take a break from watching the live cam day and night in fear of missing out on the big moment. The zoo has announced that it will conduct a naming contest after April delivers a baby to involve fans.
