Although they sometimes border on being a little bit creepy, these incredible pictures of unborn baby animals in the womb (or eggs) are simply fascinating to look at.
Don’t get TOO creeped out though, because these pictures aren’t entirely real. Using a combination of dimensional ultrasound scans, miniature cameras, and some computer graphics/photoshop skills, Peter Chinn was able to create an astonishing collection of embryonic images of unborn animals, which were featured in a National Geographic documentary a few years back. Although they aren’t true photographs, they still provide a highly accurate depiction of what these fetuses would actually look like in the womb.
Without further ado, let's get to elephant in the womb (get it? LOL).
Bats (Correction: These are of embryos that had been removed from the womb and preserved for many years.)
This confirms what I’ve known in my heart to be true all along: sharks are terrifying, even in the womb. No surprise there.
