Typically, the front hooves appear first followed by the snout.

The YouTube livestream shows more than 600 000 were watching the blessed event Saturday morning. Millions have viewed the livestream since it started in late February.

The calf is expected to weigh about 68.04 kg and be about 1.83m tall.

Once the calf is born, the Harpursville zoo in upstate New York will have a contest to name it.
