Giraffe born at Toledo zoo won't go on exhibit for a while

Have we filled in yet another missing puzzle piece in the mysterious case of April, the seemingly forever-pregnant giraffe?

April the giraffe's handlers at Animal Adventure Park in NY on Friday, April 7th said April is a "hungry, hungry giraffe".

On Thursday, April's keeper reported a significant change in her shape.

"Keep April and our team in your positive thoughts", the park said on Facebook. Tell us how long you have been watching the Animal Adventure Park live cams and make your prediction for when April will finally give birth in the comments section below. "Who knows and here is to hoping!"

Philippines struck by 5.7 magnitude quake
Intensity 3 was felt in Makati City, Pasay City, Quezon City, Muntinlupa City, Malabon City, Mandaluyong City and Bacoor, Cavite. He also said tsunamis were impossible since the earthquakes were not strong enough to move faults that could lead to a tsunami.

By Friday morning, April had finished all the prior night's grain and was still chomping away, the zoo said. Her wax caps have also reappeared and April is very much "herself". The live stream went viral, and more than 100,000 people are watching her at any given point of time.

The calf will be April's fourth calf and her mate Oliver's first calf.

"Does this "live stream" of that giraffe have ads and stuff on it?"

They noted that the left side appeared to have something sticking out.

Dallas emergency siren system hacked
Residents are asked to be patient and to avoid calling 911 or 311 as the sirens may sound again during reactivation. Surrounding cities also reported hearing sirens, but officials confirmed only the sirens in Dallas were triggered.

Zoos have welcomed these additions to their giraffe families all over the world in the time since we first started tuning into April.

The zoo says the calf and her mother, Elli, won't be on public display until they're cleared by the zoo's veterinary staff.

"We can not retain offspring, as it would lead to incestuous mating and undermine the genetics of the program and species", the zoo says. However, there are also reports that giraffe pregnancies and general, are something that veterinarians haven't studied deeply so predicting the actual due date for April is very tricky. Thousands upon thousands of commenters voiced their frustration on Facebook and YouTube, and the stream was restored within an hour or so. An exact date and time of when April will be giving birth is still not known.

Basically, April hasn't delivered yet because the baby just isn't ready yet. That doesn't include the other videos and records of previous live streams with Toys "R" Us branding on the zoo's YouTube channel, which brings the total audience for its giraffe videos to about 28 million-and counting.
