April the Giraffe feed to be taken down today

The alligator's new home, the Animal Adventure Park, recently attracted national attention when the zoo livestreamed the pregnancy of one of its giraffes, April, as she awaited the birth of her calf.

April teased her millions of global adorers for weeks before he was born, showing signs of near-but-not-quite labor and enchanting her audience with cute right-at-the-camera gazes and tongue flicks, snack noshing and nuzzling with her much younger 5-year-old beau.

"April had a small twist of her leg today which has her favoring it".

Meanwhile, April's baby had still not been named.
