CHECK OUT THESE INCREDIBLE EMBRYONIC ANIMAL PHOTOGRAPHS OF dolphins, dogs, sharks, penguins and elephants. They are previews are from a new National Geographic documentary called “Extraordinary Animals in the Womb.” The producer of the show, David Chin, used a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics and tiny cameras to capture the process from conception to birth. Amazing!

Beautiful, heartbreaking. Can't decide which is the most moving, maybe the elephant. Surprised the puppy was so solitary, thought they always come in litters.

Maybe these fetuses were "grown" especially for the photographs.... hence one puppy instead of a litter.
