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. April's keeper noted Sunday morning that she's showing "notable bulges" on the left side of her belly, the zoo reported on its Facebook page. Watch the live stream below.

But his effort to build a huge hurdle to those entering the U.S. illegally faces impediments of its own. It's still not clear how Trump will pay for the wall that, as described in contracting notices, would be 30 feet (9 meters) high and easy on the eye for those looking at it from the north.
