    :seeya:

    I'm stuck upthread, come get me if I'm not back in an hour :giggle:

    I rewinded and am watching the kitties being born and mama pushing out the placenta. What animal can we watch next giving birth that doesn't have a 15 month gestation?

    I don't know but I'm going to be in serious baby watch withdrawal after April delivers, must find something!

    This time next year we'll have to meet up again for #babyrhinowatch :happydance:

    I must be the only one still awake. Lol. April has been moving around with her tail held out. At one point, the baby kicked so hard April momentarily lost her balance.

    Me too I'm starting to think this was just a money making scheme. They were going to be shocked if she didn't deliver last weekend and yet here we are at another weekend...She is super cute though....

    This should get that calf to pop on out of there:

    This song is a lot of fun.

    4/8 Morning Update
    Allysa reports April remains the same as evening prior. Not much other to report on that front. She is big, full of milk, baby is kicking, just not coming out!
    The giraffes are really enjoying their new enrichment item!

    OK, I am now addicted to the kittens also! About 12 minutes ago, there was another cat meowing, and all of a sudden screeching cats and mom BOLTED out of her cage. The poor babies are crawling looking for mamma. You can rewind to see, if would be rewind to about 10:25 am eastern.

    That was terrifying, I saw (heard) it too! Kitty sounded fierce! The other cat is in a nest close by, also pregnant. I wonder if they might have to move her? All of mama's fuzzy bundles are adorable and I stayed up way too late watching them.

    Is the cam down? I'm not able to find a live, valid feed.

    Thank you! Yes, it's getting confusing. I always make sure it has Animal Adventure Park under the heading (and no variation), and that the video says Live with a red dot beside it.

    There was a bogus thread the other day with this same title, but no indication it was a live stream.

    I always panic when the feed goes down, thinking April is giving birth and someone at AAP cruelly and inhumanely removed the live cam.

    I don't think that is the one. (No ToysRus logo) and no checkmark by the animal adventure park name.

    Mine is down, too - here's the official YouTube channel for Animal Adventure Park, and at the moment it's not showing any Live Feeds. This better not be a ploy to have a "pay-per-view" event!!

    https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClnQCgFa9lCBL-KXZMOoO9Q/live is the legit one. And this is current screen cap at 3:57 pm eastern fwiw. Looks like offline for the last hour and lots (over 71,000 of us!) online waiting... off to look at tweets after I finish this post

    ETA: Tweets confirm offline again... another shutdown by youtube due to sexual content? I couldn't find an official word on why...

    ETA #2: Checked official facebook page... I couldn't find a reason there either. Owners are not addressing it that I can find

    :waiting:

    :moo: This link is a rerun. Folks are chatting on this rerun site if you copy link from your post and open in full screen in youtube

    :moo:

    ETA: This is why I really wish they imbedded a clock on their feed. Heck, even the kitties had a clock

    fwiw
