The Miracle Of Life: Video Of A Dolphin Giving Birth
This is a video of Keo the dolphin (NOT Echo) giving birth to a baby. Do you know what a baby dolphin is called? Whatever the mother chooses to name it. "That was dumb." Fine, they're called calves. The first two minutes is just Keo swimming around with an extra tail hanging out of her though, so skip to around 2:30 for the birthing action. SPOILER: way less traumatizing than when a human does it. Definitely would have preferred to watch this one in health class than the lady with the monster bush. I fainted, no lie.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Anne, who claims she saw a giraffe give birth at the zoo before and it was WEIRD.
