April the giraffe's live video feed is back up!

Animal Adventure Park also updates the general public about April's condition via the park's official Facebook page.

The park added: "This is what we have all been waiting for!"

Keepers said that they were hoping a text alert system would be available for tracking April's progress by Friday.

"April the Giraffe" livestream is available at the park's YouTube channel while details about the giraffe's condition as well as access to the giraffe cam is also available at April the Giraffe official website.

The latest update on April as of April 1, she continues to be acting abnormally and showing signs of contractions. And perhaps, we will finally get the adorable little calf we've been waiting for.

Her behavior and appetite were "on point" as she moved toward labor, the zoo said earlier this week.

According to the Animal Adventure Park, the 15-year-old giraffe has previously given birth to three calves, but this will be a first for five-year-old Oliver.

Visible hooves: This is the big sign in giraffe labor, as Kunter of the Denver Zoo told CBS 4.

"While I could understand that it would be a really neat elaborate hoax, it is not that". She could give birth any moment now.

April appears unconcerned about still being pregnant. The zoo said once the calf is born, it will have a contest to name it. Giraffes are pregnant for 15 months on average. This is the zoo's first giraffe calf. Labor lasts anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

According to Animal Adventure Park, the calf will weigh about 150 pounds and will stand 6-feet tall at birth.
