April, the pregnant 15-year-old giraffe who has become an Internet star over the past couple of months, is very close to finally giving birth.
Hundreds of thousands of people have tuned in to a live stream of April at the Animal Adventure Park in Upstate New York in anticipation of the birth. But April’s pregnancy has extended well beyond the projected February due date. Vets are now saying that April’s recent mood is very off, which would suggest that she is very close to giving birth.
But the Internet has grown impatient, and many are starting to wonder if they’ve all just been punked. Conspiracy theories are abound with some suggesting that the giraffe is not even pregnant and her name suggests that the whole thing is an April Fools’ Day joke. Others have gone so far as to suggest that the live stream isn’t even live, but a looped tape. (Nature World News)
