April the giraffe's baby is "kicking, but not coming out!"

When will the baby giraffe be able to walk?

Ricky Reilly, a 30-year-old musician based in New Hampshire, recently uploaded a YouTube video serenading April, the famously pregnant giraffe - and it's surprisingly catchy. Here are some facts about giraffes, their babies and how they are born.

At Animal Adventure Park in New York, April, who had been off her feed lately, began gorging on Thursday, giving zoo officials hope that her delivery is at hand. Once her calf is born and she is done nursing it, he or she will move on to another facility as it's rare to keep family members together with fear of incest.

But without a newborn giraffe, some comments have taken a darker turn, with more than a few people wondering whether the pregnancy is a hoax. The most common subspecies is the Rothschild's. "Typically a giraffe can eat up to 75lbs of food per day", said officials in the online post.

I've learned that giraffes sleep standing up and only sleep about two hours a day - just like me these days while I and a few million others are glued to our screens watching for this newest giraffe to arrive. Giraffes will remain indoors until conditions are agreeable.
