Using new technology, these images, published in UK’s Daily Mail,┬áreveal what until now has been a secret – exactly how animals develop in the womb. They were created by the same team who in 2004 showed how human embryos “walk in the womb”.

Using a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics and tiny cameras, the team were able to show the entire process from conception to birth.
