I have to admit I'm completely hooked on watching April The Giraffe on webcam from Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, NY. She was supposed to give birth at the end of February and still hasn't given birth. It's hard to explain but it is just so fascinating to watch April and her younger beau Oliver and wait for the giraffe calf to be born. She is a reticulated giraffe and there's very few of them left in the world so this calf is very much wanted to help save the giraffes.

Apparently this is a big thing all over the place but I've only got a couple of friends who are also watching April. Here's the links if you haven't seen her yet but I have to warn you, it's addictive!

I hope too that everything is ok. They've said though that they might have counted the due date wrong. A giraffe's cycle is 17 days and they might have miscalculated and counted wrong at which cycle she became pregnant so the due date might be today or at the end of this month.

She does when it's warm enough but it has been too cold for her or the other giraffe to go outside. They don't want her to freeze or slip on ice and fall.

I check on her the first thing every morning and have the live feed running in the background on my computer all day. It is so addictive!

Glad to see I'm not alone here!  I think my friends are starting to think I'm a bit nuts. "Are you still staring at that giraffe's butt?"  Blush  Secret Yup. Some have even asked if I'm sure the giraffe really is pregnant and not just fat.  Tongue
