Animals give birth

By Robyn van der Merwe

I will be the first one to admit that I find birth completely fascinating. Due to my many years of working at Parent24, I have watched a lot of birth videos and the miracle of a baby being born still amazes me every single time. 

Of course we're not the only lifeforms here on Earth that give birth to live little ones and that is just as awe inspiring. You may have seen a dog, a cat or your pet rat welcome babies into the world before, but how about a Beluga whale, a kangaroo or a white rhino? Thanks to the wonder of YouTube, I've created gifs of these dramatic birthing moments for you to witness. Take a look and watch the full videos to see more.
