HARPURSVILLE, NY (WHTM) –  Giraffe baby watch is on again. Zoo keepers at Animal Adventure Park in New York expect April the Giraffe to give birth soon. 

April gained worldwide fame in 2017 when the birth of her calf Tajiri was streamed live. Her current birth is also expected to be streamed live. 

Zookeepers had anticipated the birth as early as this weekend. 

In a post on Animal Adventure Park’s Facebook page, keepers reported April’s tail is now “hanging and pinning to the left a bit, which is appropriate and expected positioning for the big moment.”

Viewers of the webcam have reported seeing April take slight jumps. The zoo says that is the reult of pressure and calf kicks, which indicates the baby is alive and well.
