April the Giraffe live camera is back up after 'Internet outage'

A lot of eyes are on April the giraffe Friday as the birth of her calf is expected soon.

Yet, here we are.

"We will continue to keep you posted".

April has been with Animal Adventure Park since September 2015 and this is her first calf birth at the park. "We will not confirm active labor, but we do have discharge that would suggest the [countdown] to calf has begun", the park management stated on Facebook. "I would hope that on April 1 the world does find out she was pregnant". And although it could not be captured in photos, the pregnant giraffe's udders are reportedly full, which they say is a clear indication that "it should not be much longer". An exact date and time of when April will be giving birth is still not known.

Hundreds of thousands of viewers were watching the live stream when it suddenly cut out at midday BST on April Fool's Day. "The flawless ending. April - waited for April!" they wrote.

Maybe April was just waiting for April.

What is going on with Animal Adventure Park's Livestream of April the pregnant giraffe?

The temperature in the barn ranges from about sixty-five degrees at giraffe chest height to eighty degrees at giraffe head height according to the park. Others on social media sparked conspiracy theory rumors as the giraffe cam outage coincided with the holiday; many thought the whole thing was an elaborate April Fool's Day prank. We've seen her act with affection to her mate Oliver.

The little giraffe won't be all that little.

When it's born, he or she will weigh around 150 pounds and will be about 6′ tall!

The video was initially removed after animal rights activists flagged the videos as "sexually explicit" before being restored.

First, if you had a decent idea when the giraffe would give birth, why have a live stream running for weeks.
