pink elephants

Thanks to Carrie, I read a lot about fetuses, neonates (what docs refer to babies as!) and the nastiness that can occur when someone is kooky enough to get themselves knocked up. Even a perfectly healthy pregnancy is like a Japanese horror film that lasts nine months. But, when your best friend is in med school and asks you to edit papers for her, you become exposed to some pretty unique medical nightmares. Google "stone baby". I fucking dare you.

So I've come to view the fetus as a gross and somewhat dangerous phenomenon. Pics of them generally freak me out, however, I found this on National Geographic.

Elephant fetus! I won't lie. I THINK IT'S SO CUTE!!! And it looks a little like the Elephants in Fantasia. Only a little less creepy. .

I love the mention, thanks!
Don't put any human fetuses on here though, some of the anti-choicers gloss up pics to look really cute which is really creepy. How did you find this pic PS?

Hi, I'm Corrina said...

National Geographic did a series on animals in utero, some new technology that allows them to be photographed... I'll look for the link and send you!
