April the Giraffe could be pregnant again
HARPURSVILLE, NY (WDRB) --The "twitterverse" is buzzing with news that April the Giraffe could be pregnant again.
April became a worldwide phenomenon when she became pregnant and gave birth last year. Now, zookeepers at the Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, New York, say she could be expecting again.
The park posted a video explaining their suspicions about April's condition. They say she doesn't seem to very interested in Oliver, the male giraffe who fathered her last calf Tajiri.
And zookeepers say she's also extra sleepy.
April's keepers revealed how they'll determine whether she's expecting. Apparently, they have been collecting stool samples for the past 30 days. They are preparing to send off the samples to another zoo for confirmation of a possible pregnancy.
If April is expecting, she would give birth sometime in 2019.
The much-viewed "Giraffe Cam" continues to live stream April, Oliver and their not-so-little baby 7-days-a-week during limited hours. To get your fix, check out AprilTheGiraffe.
