In the Womb: Animals is an unprecedented two-hour world premiere special that takes you inside the hidden world of animal pregnancy. Using state-of-the-art visual effects, computer graphics and real-time, moving 4-D ultrasound imagery, we can see inside the unique world of animal fetal development in a way never before possible. For the first time, these pictures shed light on how an elephant, a dolphin and a dog develop in the womb. - National Geographic Channel.

But even the pictures on the site are pretty cool. And here is an extra cool pic of an elephant.

  • ????? We've always had the means of visualizing animal fetuses in the womb. They're called "knives" or "scalpels" and have been used by uncounted generations of biology students and butchers. In the case of poultry, it's even easier. Just incubate eggs and crack them as often as desired.
  • That's why this is of interest - the fetuses were not harmed in the ogling.
  • OK, we've finally found a non-squee-inducing puppy picture. The elephetus is tres cool, though. He looks like something out of a Chagall painting.
  • > In the case of poultry, it's even easier. Light boxes.
  • Wow, that elephant picture is lovely.
  • 4-D imagery? The future is NOW!
  • I'm lovin' the word "elephetus."
