The young llama, as well as his mother, are both said to be doing well; both were moved indoors to avoid the drop in temperatures.

As with people, Kunter said labor and delivery can vary in difficulty, depending perhaps on how many calves the animal has birthed previously. But it's unlikely they anticipated the level of interest.

The buzz surrounding the live birth has soared since she was placed on official baby watch on February 23.

Aprilthegiraffe.com includes a link for buying merchandise from baby clothing to adult-sized hoodies imprinted with a giraffe's head and '#Aprils View Crew'. In a video posted on the zoo's Facebook page, Jordan Patch blamed "a handful of extremists and animal rights activists".

"We observed breeding behaviour in about mid-October (2015)". Give us all your thoughts below! "Or maybe 34 days after that". There's been no major improvements overnight, they say.

The zoo has also been hit with other problems since starting the live feed. After hundreds of viewers expressed their outrage about the video's removal, YouTube later reinstated it.

The internet might have a little while longer to wait, as park officials have admitted that they might have April's due date mixed up. Dobby is the first giraffe born at the Denver Zoo since October 2010, and is the offspring of Kipele and father Dikembe.

Surratt says April isn't quite in labor yet, and clues us in to some tell-tale signs that will let us know when she is about to give birth. At the time of birth he measured 5-feet-tall and weighed 73 pounds.

Contractions: Stomach movement should come from the calf jostling inside, and the mother will straighten her neck and show movement in her hips, according to the station.
