As a female, there is no greater gift you can give to your species than life. A woman, wife or mother when pregnant glows with the happiness of new life growing inside of her and it is no different with animals. Animals too are just as proud and protective when they are pregnant. It is an instinct with them knowing that this is the time they have babies growing inside them and so they take special care of themselves. Here are some cute pictures of animals when pregnant.

1 Pregnant Hedgehog: I’m fat and cute

This photograph was uploaded to a social platform and the hedgehog's name is Gemini. Hedgehog, unlike other mammals, give only one large baby instead of a litter. They remain pregnant for at least 7 months.

2Orangutan in California: I’m so drained now!! When will this thing come out?

This Orangutan hails from Southern California and is feeling the heat being pregnant in summer. The gestation period of Orangutan is around 8 months. They too will also give one baby as primates are similar to humans when it comes to birth.

4Zebra: Yes I’m a little bulky!

Now, this is one heavily pregnant zebra that is 390 days pregnant. In Africa, zebras give birth after 12 to 13 moths and a foal is born with brown and white stripes that turn black and white later. The rainy season is when most zebras deliver their babies.

5Angry cat: I’m having babies again?

This feline doesn’t look at all happy being pregnant because she looks a bit grumpy. By the absence of fur, this looks like a sphinx cat and isn’t a very young one at that. Perhaps she is grumpy at getting knocked up again and going through the whole cycle of delivering babies.
