Possible contractions for April the giraffe

Possible contractions for April the giraffe

April's condition was pretty much unchanged Thursday morning, the zoo said, adding that there was "a lot of behavior that had us on our toes but no acknowledgeable active labor at this time".

The zoo, which unveiled April-inspired emojis and t-shirts as the fan base for the 15-year-old long-necked beauty continues to swell, said twin Barbados lambs and a Patagonian Cavy were born early Wednesday.

As of Friday morning, United Kingdom time, the latest live stream - set up on 24 February - has had nearly 20 million views, with the accumulative time racked up by viewers equating to a somewhat staggering 1,036 years.

The Denver Zoo's giraffe, Kipele, and baby Dobby.

Jordan Patch, the park's owner, said he has received calls and emails from people around the country and outside the United States, inquiring about where to travel to visit the park.

"We observed breeding behaviour in about mid-October (2015). Or maybe 34 days after that".

Kane nets brace, Spurs top Everton
Kane opened the scoring early on at White Hart Lane through a superb long range strike. You have to want to score goals every time you are on the pitch.

The stream, however, was briefly taken down when animal rights activists flagged it as "sexually explicit", according to the park. Dobby joins the zoo's four other reticulated giraffes, which include his mom and his dad, Dikembe.

The Denver Zoo has a new attraction.

Zookeepers did not know until recently that the mother, Kipele, was pregnant since she was on birth control, CBS Denver reports.

April's offspring, that has yet to be born, will become her fourth baby but the first calf to be born at the Animal Adventure Park.

But the giraffe - who was only five feet (1.52m) tall and 73 pounds (33kg) at birth - has not had the easiest start to life, needing a plasma infusion in order to boost his immune system.

However, when that will be is anyone's guess.
