The Denver Zoo welcomed the birth of a baby giraffe Tuesday morning.
The Denver Post reported that the infant giraffe stands at 5-foot and weighs 73 pounds. On such the low, in fact, zoo officials actually didn't know for sure she was pregnant until Dobby began making his way into the world.
While hundreds of thousands of people were glued to the viral live stream of April, a giraffe in upstate NY about to give birth any minute now, a Denver giraffe quietly birthed her own little one, to the surprise of pretty much everyone. The feed has attracted over 15 million views so far.
A photo posted to the zoo's facebook page shows April's rotund belly curving out and downward, a sign that she's nearing the home stretch of her pregnancy, says owner Jordan Patch.
The internet might have a little while longer to wait, as park officials have admitted that they might have April's due date mixed up.
As with people, Kunter said labor and delivery can vary in difficulty, depending perhaps on how many calves the animal has birthed previously.

Chance said that it went differently from how "it should have". "Springfield is in session next week, so we'll see what happens". Chance was intent on having this meeting because he wanted to talk about Chicago Public Schools (CPS).
Five days ago, the zoo uploaded a live stream of April's pen to YouTube (see below). They said she had a good, but active Friday night and appeared to contract.
Baby watch continues at Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville where April the giraffe is expecting. No, April the giraffe from all of those Facebook lives still hasn't given birth, but another giraffe has made it look easy.
The zoo will hold an online competition to name April's calf.
April's gestation period will have taken 15 months.
This is despite promises that the baby giraffe could turn up at any minute - and people are starting to get a little twitchy.
