Boy or Girl? Text Alerts to Deliver Gender of April the Giraffe's Calf

Meanwhile, the world waits for April the pregnant giraffe to give birth in upstate NY.

The following update was published on Animal Adventure Park's Facebook page Monday: "This morning keeper report is no interest in grain and only smelling lettuce treats".

Her body/belly is much less beach balled, as the bulges have streamlined. "We hope for launch sequence", they continued.

Tens of thousands of people have been tuned in for days watching the reticulated giraffe walk around her pen and do very little else, waiting until she has the baby.

There's been a lot of speculation of how long April has been in labor and if she's actually contracting.

Helms wrote online: 'Just happened to be at the Memphis Zoo when this occurred'. Thousands of fans have kept watch over live webcam footage chronicling April's every move. "Mostly people asking what April's birthday is, that's the most common question I'm getting, which I don't know".

April's pregnancy was catapulted into global headlines late last month after YouTube briefly yanked the zoo's stream following complaints by animal activists that it violated the site's policies concerning "nudity and sexual content". "Let's see if April's plan is to break up your work week!" Zoo officials said Tuesday that April continues to "carry her great demeanor".

Despite contractions however, April still has not gone into full labor.

Meanwhile in New York, April has became a worldwide drawing millions of views from across the globe after falling pregnant at Harpursville's Animal Adventure Park. (And you bet your ass she was with her).

So, we've compiled a few baby giraffe facts that will help you get to know the young calf as it grows.

So the timeline for my 24-48 hour prediction is rapidly coming to an end. not surprising is the fact that we still have no calf and we still don't have a giraffe in Labor!
