3/28 Update on April the Giraffe-All is well in Giraffe Land. Belly changes are obvious from week prior comparisons.
Progression! The udder continues to fill. Giraffes do not “bag up” with a full udder in the sense of a cow, dog, goat, sow. Their udder is very subtle and tucked between the legs. The development occurs, generally, just prior to birthing. Photo of this morning’s mammary growth in comments. Here forward, we are most concerned with this area and will gauge our status from it, until a hoof is waving hello!
All other behaviors and appetite are on point.
