Giraffe Watch: Animal park continues to await arrival of baby giraffe

Millions have been watching the giraffe on the giraffe cam, which is streaming on YouTube.

The reticulated giraffe calf could be born at any time. The newborn calf will weigh around 150 pounds and is expected to be about 6 feet tall at birth.

The world has their eyes on NY giraffe April as she's due to give birth to her fourth calf any time now.

They've been patiently awaiting the very moment she welcomes a calf into the world.

The park says YouTube made a decision to take down the feed briefly after animal rights extremists complained about it.

So imagine viewers' disappointment when Animal Adventure Park's YouTube video was suddenly removed for "nudity and sexual content" Thursday morning.

"What this has done is pulled an educational tool away from tens of millions of individuals".

According to a Sunday update from the zoo, it only takes a giraffe 30 minutes to go through active labor.

Veterinarians with the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, outside Binghamton, said April is experiencing increased belly movement. Giraffes have a 15-month gestation period, and April's tentative due date was mid-February, Patch said. According to vets, bullish behavior is common for male giraffes during the final stages of pregnancy. The zoo says it will hold a contest to name it.
