GIRAFFE WATCH: Further belly development and drop

NJ Sees 3 Baby Giraffes Born as April's Pregnancy Continues

And they did. Two days after ordering, the mask arrived, and Dietrich began her instantly viral parody-stream.

Even more, Tatu was actually Autumn's third calf (hence the name that means "three" in Swahili).

April's keepers reported a significant amount of belly movement and tail raising by the mom-to-be, as well as a strong appetite. She is slated to give birth any day.

"I did not think this many people would get a kick out of this", the mother wrote of her parody, "Clearly we live an exciting life over here in the Dietrich household". You can watch the live giraffe cam in the video playlist below.

April changed some of her behaviors overnight Friday; she choose new spots to stand and sleep and strayed off her usual naptime routine, the Animal Adventure Park said. This will also be the fourth birth for the giraffe. You may find more information on April's official website below.

April's pregnancy was catapulted into global headlines last week after YouTube briefly yanked the zoo's live stream following complaints by animal activists that it violated the site's policies concerning "nudity and sexual content". The feed was restored about an hour later.

Giraffe calves are usually about six feet tall and 150 pounds.

This obviously isn't the first time a baby giraffe was born in a zoo.
