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 developmentfrom fertilization to birthof 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.
