Well, all we can say is that you have to see it to believe it and that is quite an understatement. We all want to know what animal babies are like in the womb of their mothers. Big animals like elephants, sharks, horses or small animals like bats, snakes (small snakes) and other members of animal kingdom in the safety of their mother’s wombs look so cute.

A National Geographic channel photographer and producer Peter Chin was able to capture various such animals in the womb of their mothers and the results are just fantastic, actually the result is beyond fantastic.

Chin used 3D imaging technique and colored ultrasounds of the pregnant animals combined with the use of small cameras and graphics to give the final results a life like look. These astonishing images as a part of documentary called “In the Womb: Animals” and though the documentary dates to 2006, the images popped up on photo sharing site Imgur this week and we have 10 of the best images of them for your viewing pleasure.

So sit back and look in awe at 10 unborn animals in their mother’s womb.
