Baby Giraffe Quiets in April's Belly: Calm Before the Storm?

As April the giraffe's belly grows ever larger, her highly anticipated calf has gotten quiet, leading zookeepers to wonder if this is the calm before the storm. The giraffe calf caused a stir Friday when it launched a "judo chop marathon" inside its mother's belly but it calmed down significantly on Saturday.

President Donald Trump has now laid out exactly what he wants in the "big, beautiful wall" that he's promised to build on the U.S.-Mexico border. But his effort to build a huge hurdle to those entering the U.S. illegally faces impediments of its own.
