  • Giraffe Watch: Still no baby calf for April the Giraffe

While you were waiting for internet sensation April to give birth in NY, the Denver Zoo quietly welcomed a baby giraffe Tuesday morning. During the first two years of his life, he'll grow to be nearly 12 feet tall - and could grow to 17 feet! "I, April the pregnant giraffe, understand that you are interested in the impending birth of my calf", she "told" Today.com Tuesday.

A YouTube live feed from an animal park in NY has the nation on the edge of its seat as webcams watch a giraffe who is due to give birth any day.

Meanwhile, more than a week after the livestream was launched, April the giraffe has yet to go into labor, though the zoo noted some overnight changes to her behavior.

"The world waits on edge. and April smirks with a mouthful of cud", they posted Wednesday night to Facebook. But now it's back up, and more people than ever are interested.

Five days ago, the zoo uploaded a live stream of April's pen to YouTube (see below).
