9 Amazing X-Ray Images Of Pregnant Animal Bellies

The miracle of life is incredible to watch.

Whether it’s your sister that’s pregnant, or your mother’s goat that’s expecting babies, there is always at least some degree of giddy anticipation for the big day when new life enters the world.

We’re used to seeing sonograms of human babies throughout all stages of pregnancy. But have you ever wondered what other animals look like inside when they’re pregnant with their offspring?

You may think it’s dangerous for animals to get an X-ray while they are pregnant. However, vets say that one X-ray won’t hurt the tiny babies, and the knowledge of how many babies are on the way can be lifesaving to the mother in many cases. So fear not for the little ones in the following images!

These nine pregnant animal mothers-to-be under the X-ray machine are all incredibly beautiful. Have you ever seen anything like this before?
