April will raise the calf naturally.

April's keepers reported a significant amount of belly movement and tail raising by the mom-to-be, as well as a strong appetite. Deitrich, who is pregnant with her fourth child, is due on March 14, according WTSP.

He also stated that giraffes fertility cycles run every 17 days, so the conception and subsequent due date could be 17 or even 34 days after their initial estimations.

The zoo said Friday April appears "a little more on edge" and is "not being as lovely as usual".

"I think the fact that she's a giraffe and she's a neat species that people are interested in, that's fostered a lot of the attention", he said. The feed was restored about an hour later. Once April goes into active labor, zookeepers will go in to help her the rest of the way.

The calf will weigh around 150 pounds and be approximately 6-feet-tall at birth, PIX11 reports. There will be a future announcement for a contest where viewers can suggest names for the baby giraffe.
