Donkey Goes Into Labor And Collapses To The Ground, Then Camera Zooms In On Her Baby

The miracle that is birth is never lost on animal lovers.

It’s incredibly fascinating to watch creatures of all kinds come into the world because you learn so much.

For example, check out what a chameleon birth looks like — I would have never guessed that the tiny newborn chameleon shoots out of his mom that way! And who knew seahorses push out hundreds, sometimes thousands of their babies all at once? Nature is truly a wonder!

In the clip below, a donkey goes into labor.

The mother, undoubtedly in pain, collapses to the ground and pushes with all her might. The little one’s front legs are out, but his head has yet to appear.

Minutes go by before one big push brings the baby into the world!

The newborn doesn’t waste any time. He immediately starts moving around and cleaning himself. But Mom is too exhausted. She’s still on the ground, taking a few deep breaths before she tends to the baby donkey.

How often do you get to see something as miraculous as this?

With the help of Mom, he’ll be walking and running around in no time!
