Male Horse Starts Twitching Like Crazy. But Watch The Top Of His Belly Closely…

There is no miracle more beautiful and natural than the miracle of birth.

What is so wonderful about birth is how different and exciting it can be for everyone. Recently, one baby was allowed to crawl out of his mother’s stomach during a natural C-section.

So much varies when it comes to bringing new life to this Earth. For humans, we have a standard gestation of nine months, or about 280 days, but for other mammals, it varies. A dog’s gestation only lasts 58 to 68 days!

But then, when it comes to sea creatures, it’s even more different. Did you know that the male seahorse is who carries the young until their birth?

During the mating process, the female seahorse can deposit up to 1,800 eggs in the male seahorse’s pouch. They can hold up to 2,000 eggs, though! The male seahorse then stays pregnant with these babies for anywhere from 10 to 25 days.

Depending on the breed of seahorse, sometimes the mother and father will do a dance before giving birth. In the video below, Mom stays out of the way during the delivery. You can see Dad starts to have some contractions, but the moment their little ones arrive is unforgettable. I’ve never seen anything like it!

If you enjoyed this birth, then you will love this otter giving birth to these adorable and rare quadruplets!
