(FoxNews.com) - April the giraffe, who became an internet craze during her last pregnancy in 2017, may be expecting another calf.
Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville, N.Y., where the beloved 15-foot-tall giraffe is staying, announced on its Facebook page Tuesday that zoo staffers have been collecting April’s feces for a month to determine if she’s pregnant.
“For 30 days in a row, Alyssa sampled, or collected, a fecal specimen from April’s stall. It was stored in a plastic bag labeled with a date and an identifying number and put in a freezer storage,” a staff member explained.
The samples will be shipped to another zoo’s lab to confirm whether April is pregnant.
If the 16-year-old giraffe is pregnant, she will likely give birth in 2019.
April became somewhat of a social media celebrity when the last few weeks of her pregnancy were livestreamed on YouTube, raking in more than 232 million views. More than a million people watched April while she was in labor and gave birth to her calf Tajiri.
Tajiri, whose father is a 6-year-old giraffe named Oliver, now stands 10 feet tall.
April has given birth to four calves, but Tajiri was the first born at Animal Adventure Park.
