Witnessing an animal give birth in the wild is an incredibly rare occurrence not many will get to experience. But seeing baby animals while still in the womb is on a whole other level of impossible… at least until now.

Using small cameras, ultrasound technology, and digital imaging, National Geographic recently gave animal lovers around the world a one-of-a-kind glimpse at some amazing creatures before they leave the womb, and it’s absolutely breathtaking.

I always thought horses were majestic, but that baby horse is the embodiment of the true miracle of life. It’s almost as if it were sculpted by hand.
