This incredible journey was first chronicled for the critically acclaimed National Geographic Channel special of the same name, where 3-D and 4-D ultrasound was used on animals for the first time on television. These and other amazing computer-generated graphics highlight the path of development and in the process reveals of the amazing science with outstanding detail.
Published at the same time as the latest National Geographic Channel special, In The Womb: Extreme Animals, this volume highlights the development of the bottlenose dolphin, Asian elephant, and golden retriever, and through comparisons to other animals and humans, emphasizes the differences—and similarities—between them. This resource is perfect for animal-lovers and inquisitive minds alike.
