On Friday, her keepers said that she had been outside and “enjoying the sun.”
“Light discharge continues,” the update reads. “Otherwise, all is normal and well – as expected. The only real drastic changes we will see from here is active labor – no much more change / development can occur.”
Thursday’s update veered into TMI territory, so be warned:
“Backend slightly damp but nothing to get excited about yet. We are still observing light discharge on a daily basis”
Wednesday’s update said April’s udder showed “mammary development”. April’s keepers also had stern words for those believe her pregnancy to be fake news:
“For any hoaxers or #Fakenews stories questioning April and the pregnancy – a quick biology lesson – animals do not develop milk unless supporting a pregnancy. Furthermore – giraffes do not develop large udders like cattle etc, so to see this much development truly suggests calving in the near future.
Patience is a virtue! Remember, the Giraffe Cam was not set-up to capture an immediate birth – it was set-up to capture a process. Mind you, we did expect a calf sooner than this – but that is all The waiting continues!
