Giraffe watch: Vets hope April will give birth soon

This is Animal Adventure's first giraffe calf.

That might sum up the attitude of millions of people around the world who have been waiting and watching April's live camera for weeks, hoping to catch the birth.

The zoo said Thursday morning April was moving a little slower at breakfast, but otherwise appeared to be her usual self.

According to vet reports posted on the park's Facebook page Tuesday, she is still not in labor but close.

Kane set to replace Rooney as England captain
"Their coach has promised for them to play a more modern football, more possession-orientated". Defoe won the most recent of his 55 England caps in a 2-0 defeat by Chile in November 2013.

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

Hundreds of thousands of people watch the broadcast at any one time, and she has developed quite a following on social media. Patch explained that it's not very likely that you will be able to tell April's labor until you see an actual hoof begin to poke out of her rear-end. "And then they kind of come out like a ball", said Felts.

"It's just really interesting", she said.

The keepers will go in with April, clean her pen, give her treats (but not Oliver). Remember, that baby is about 150 pounds and 6 feet tall, and needs room. The calf was visibly poking April's belly on Sunday, making a bulge in her side.

Apple Denies Claim That Its System Was Hacked (AAPL)
The hackers stated that they would also accept payment in the form of $100,000 worth of iTunes gift cards . They have given Apple until April 7 to meet their ransom demands.

Over the weekend, the park posted updates to inform April's followers that her appetite remains strong and that her belly has nearly doubled in size in just days.

Animal Adventure Park began streaming on February 23 on YouTube showing April preparing to give birth, drawing worldwide attraction.

One woman said she checks at least once a day.

Giraffe pregnancies last up to 15 months. This again brought to mind something the Inquisitr wrote about last week - since many feel that it's simply taking too long for April to give birth, it may likely be an elaborate April Fools' joke.

However, with Kane out for at least a month, Janssen is more than likely going to get another chance to show what he can do. Vertonghen and Tottenham will be without Kane for Sunday's visit of Southampton at White Hart Lane.

"April's website, aprilthegiraffe.com, includes a link for buying apparel from baby clothing to adult-sized hoodies imprinted with a giraffe's head and "#Aprils View Crew" along with the park's name and location.
