this has been going on for over a MONTH!! Can't anyone estimate correctly?

I for one will be very happy to watch the video after it happens. We don't really get a badge for seeing it live, do we? or bragging rights? That would be a very dull conversation if someone felt the need to bring up, "I watched a LIVE video of a giraffe giving birth."

From what I can tell in the video, it looks like April has a bit of a "bulge" out at the back? Not necessarily part of the calf sticking out, but perhaps pressure back there is increasing and things are starting to open up for delivery?

I was just checking in on April. She is very restless and walking around her pen pretty much nonstop. Maybe this means something....

I have seen other animals give birth but this is a little alien-ish so far lol. Go April!

It's worse now. The baby and Oliver are interested in each other and it is so cute! The baby also has a mane down his neck and it is also so cute! So much cuteness!!!

FYI - the feed is still live, so everyone can get all the cute giraffe baby cuteness overload they want. I've been having it up in a separate tab and watching every once in a while. Right now he's over at Oliver's pen. They are touching noses through the screening.
