Supported by amazing visual effects, computer graphics and real-time, moving ultra-sound pictures In the Womb: Cats and Dogs gives us a unique view into the world of dog and cats in-utero development.


In the Womb: Cats follows the development of one of the most successful animal groups. They come in all shapes and sizes; from the small, harmless house cat, to the King of Beasts, the lion, to the fastest animal on land, the cheetah. They're certainly different species and vastly differing sizes, but they share many of the same characteristics as they grow in the womb. Discover what kittens and cubs acquire before they're even born that equips them to be skilled predators when they're grown up.


In the Womb: Dogs follows the development—from fertilization to birth—of three domesticated dogs and their single ancestor, the gray wolf. By following their fetal development, explore just how closely related they are, as well as what it is that makes them so distinct. Our three breeds are different in both form and function: the giant Neapolitan Mastiff, bred as a guard dog to Roman emperors, the tiny Mexican Chihuahua, and the ever popular golden Retriever.

Comments about In the Womb: Cats and Dogs DVD:

This is an excellent DVD whether you are discussing reproduction, evolution or simply cell differentiation. I used it with my Living Environment class at the beginning of cellular biology.

The dog is the ultimate human creation. With 400 breeds and counting, the dog is more varied in size and behavior than any other species on the planet. National Geographic looks at man's evolutionary manipulation of dogs' appearance, talents and temperament—and the accelerating efforts to create breeds to suit our needs (more than 80 percent of today's breeds did not exist 150 years ago). From desirable traits like supersensitive hearing and smell to the unintended consequences of genetic diseases, learn how nature and man have partnered to deliberately create new and specialized versions of man's best friend.

To reveal the secrets of the most mysterious of all big cats, a crack team of conservationists hire one of the U.S.'s finest trackers, Boone Smith, to locate, capture and film wild jaguars using all means necessary. Jaguars are notoriously elusive, and consequently the least studied of all big cats. Chance sightings and occasional captures have helped explain some aspects of jaguars' lives, but mostly they operate beyond the reach of scientists. Boone’s mission clashes his experience in the wilderness of the Rockies with the hazards of Belize's jungles and Brazil's swamps. He needs to learn quickly from local experts and draw deeply on his own expertise to achieve their goal: to reveal startling new insights into the hidden lives of these magnificent creatures.
