Is April the Giraffe's Pregnancy Real, Or, a Big April Fools' Joke?

The Animal Adventure Park posted on Facebook Friday morning that they believe April could have a calf "today" or "tonight".

In a late Wednesday evening update, April's veterinarian Dr. Tim wrote, "Ok Gang. if you have been watching today, you should start getting excited. we are seeing nearly all the signs of birth happening within the coming days. of course, my schedule is insane for the next few days so naturally, we will pick the worst time possible. Hah". By Friday, Animal Adventure Park, the zoo where April is housed, had something new to report.

The park added: "This is what we have all been waiting for!" Animal Adventure Park takes pride in their indoor housing and the level of enrichment and care to keep the giraffes happy and healthy. "It should not be much longer!"

Do you think April will have a March or April baby? Good Morning America even has a live stream up and running.

We are all beginning to wonder if this is a well-planned April Fools Day joke. Their gestation period usually lasts to 13 to 15 months and when it's time, they give birth in a standing position.

We love watching April bump heads with the father of her calf, like we loved watching young National Zoo panda Bei Bei snooze on top of her mom, like we love watching bears catching salmon in an Alaska national park.

Astronauts lose piece of shielding during record-setting spacewalk

3/3 Evening UpdateIt was clear to all watching, the evening keeper check was cut short by April.

Contractions: Stomach movement should come from the calf jostling inside, and the mother will straighten her neck and show movement in her hips, according to the station. Her partner, Oliver the Giraffe, is sometimes also seen in the feed. He won't take any part in rearing the calf, though. Giraffes are only in labor for about 20-30 minutes so once it's go-time, that's it! April was elsewhere when she gave birth to her first three calves, and this one will be the Harpursville zoo's first giraffe calf.

We learned that April is 15 years old. At birth it will weigh in at about 150 pounds and will stand at about 6' tall, Animal Adventure Park said.
