This photo shows a bottlenose dolphin about six months through its gestation period. Bottlenose dolphins can be found wherever the ocean is relatively warm. They give birth after twelve months. Tiny teeth have begun to form inside the mouth of this dolphin fetus, and its tail flukes are beginning to develop.
Halfway through its twenty-two month gestation period, this Asian elephant is a perfect miniature of its already-born brethren. Even the tiny trunk has formed, and small hoofs can also be seen. Unlike humans, infant elephants have physical proportions which remain the same into adulthood.
Sharks are extremely rare among fish, since they bear their young in the fashion of a mammal. This tiger shark will soon grow into one of the ocean’s deadliest predators. Even in the womb, its sharp teeth are clearly visible and just as intimidating—they even allow it to eat its unborn siblings if it feels the urge to do so. This shark species is responsible for deaths nearly every year, but most of them are avoidable.
