What Pregnancies Look Like In The Animal World (Viral Thread)

No matter how much knowledge we have about nature, every once in a while, something will shock us and remind us how amazing nature actually is. Whether it's the incredible bonds between animals, whether it's coming across a list of beautiful animals with unusual color mutations, or whether it's something as simple yet as amazing as seeing the way pregnancies look like in nature. 

Even thought every birth of an endangered animal is something that we celebrate, the actual is something that we, for whatever reason, haven't thought about very often. But, this viral thread on imgurhas opened our eyes, and has made us have a whole new appreciation for the heartwarming relationships between animal mommas and their babies.

On this episode of teen moms...

Kitten Lady, YouTuber and kitten-lover extraordinaire, is taking care of a kitten...who had a kitten. As she writes in the video description, "Kittens shouldn't be having kittens, folks."

She also includes this fact, "Did you know that a kitten can get pregnant as young as 4 months of age? That's why you should always spay and neuter kittens before they reach 4 months of age--to prevent pregnancy and stop the teen cat mom epidemic!"

We didn't know -- but glad we do now! 

Please spay and neuter your pets!

There were plans to have the birth be the first live broadcast of a panda cub being born, but plans were cut when the Chengdu Breeding Research Centre found out the panda was faking it.

"Pandas thought to be pregnant receive 24-hour care, more food, and live in an air-conditioned single room." Wu Kongju, who works at the centre, told Xinhua: "They also receive more buns, fruits and bamboo, so some clever pandas have used this to their advantage to improve their quality of life."
