Is April The Giraffe Even Really Pregnant?
This has been the longest giraffe-birth EVER. People all over the world are waiting for April the giraffe to give birth at Animal Adventure Park - but now, people question the legitimacy of the entire pregnancy.
Of course, this is just silly. Animal Adventure Park has done ultrasounds on April to make sure of the pregnancy. However, people are skeptical because of how long April has been in labor. After many hours, days, and now even weeks of watching - many are emotionally invested and are concerned for the 15-year-old giraffe.
Concerns are great, but there's really nothing to worry about. Giraffes hide their labor as well as they can, because in the wild a predator could be waiting for the birth to get the calf. If you are patient, April will indeed give birth.
Signs to look for: A big sign that April is about to give birth is if you see her water break. Also, giraffes give birth STANDING UP. Do not expect April to be laying down for it. Also, once it happens, you will first notice a hoof. (Just a heads up!)
