(PCM) April the giraffe, who resides at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, NY, is due to give birth at any moment and the internet is obsessed! The zoo is live streaming the birthing event and of course folks are already growing impatient, as they anxiously await the arrival of the newborn calf.
Some have been literally glued to the live stream day and night, because seriously, what else do we really have to do? Bah! Who cares about work? A baby giraffe is on the way!
April the giraffe is 15 years old and this will be the fourth calf that she has given birth to, which is a lot considering giraffes are pregnant for a period of 15 months. When the calf is born it will be approximate 6 feet tall and weigh about 150 pounds.
Given that everything else newsworthy these days seems to surround politics and controversy, it is nice to be able to veg out and watch something completely mindless sometimes! But, seriously, April, the internet wants you to get a move on with this birth already! At the time we are viewing the video there is well over 100,000 people tuned into the livestream which is just amazing! Says something for the beauty of life! It is definitely mesmerizing!
