7 Extreme Animal Moms

6275 ratings | 157049 views
From changing diapers to cleaning up vomit, human parents can have it tough, but at least they don't have to incubate their babies under their skin or liquify their own guts to feed their brood like these animal moms do! In honor of Mother's Day in the United states, we've put together a list of moms that take parenting to another level.

It's things like these that makes life seem even more pointless and unethical. Just bc u can create life, doesn't mean you should. We aren't "meant" to pass on our genes. Life has no meaning. There's no meaning to suffer. But after saying this ofc, some dumbasses are going to think I am suicidal when the truth just needs to be told.

Those gastric frogs who swallow their young should have been named Chronos Frogs.

I was sad for all the tropophobes that there was no footage of the frogs emerging from the skin of the mother Surinam Toad. However, I am more disappointed that there was no footage of the Gastric Brooding Frog projectile vomiting. We must bring them back... for science!

When it comes to nature, not many things will get to me. However, aside from certain parasites, there is one exception: the Suriname toad. People talk about spiders and snakes and all other creepy-crawlies, but no. Those are nothing. This thing is what nightmares are truly made of. I learned about this abomination of zoology long before watching this video but even so, just hearing about it... Well, it makes me incredibly uncomfortable. So, SciShow, I sincerely thank you for not showing footage of the act.

Hearing about babies eating their way out of their mother while having breakfast... and finishing breakfast. Check!

There really should have been a trigger warning before the toad stuff. My puke just barely missed my laptop.

As far as record breakers go, while I don't exactly have any numbers to back up this claim, but I'd bet a pretty penny that humans manage one of the highest retention rates of offspring to adulthood

WTF SciShow!!! I have trypophobia! You must show a warning before displaying those frog images.

Indeed, how DID the gastric brooding frog evolve? Think about it. Let's use our brains here... *gears turning*

Hopefully nobody tried to buy their moms a present from the scishow store. It's nothing more than a bait-and-switch scam. They trick you with a picture of a nifty trilobite any sci-mom would be proud to show off to her friends, but after they get your money the scishow sends you a disgusting lump of rock that looks exactly like a dog turd. So disgusting you can't even give it away to kids who are fascinated with fossils. So never give scishow any money, they'll just rip you off.

I didn't expect a video about moms to be not safe for food. Never Ever watch biology videos while eating.
What about the Adactylidium?

I kept hearing Sicilians instead of Caecilians and that just made this episode a whole lot weirder. Example; "Sicilians are so hard to observe in the wild..."

I think that a crucial mother was missed from this list... No, not human moms, the Giant Pacific Octopus. I mean the mom spends weeks in a cave taking care of the eggs all by herself, doesnt eat anything, and then eventually dies from exhaustion, and then the babies, once they hatch feed on her. Isnt this also considered Matriphagy?

"how did this evolve" lol best quote. mother nature is just so odd

After having my kids it really made me think of just how awesome our bodies are to make and grow a little human. I don't think anything is more beautiful than seeing a mother (any mother) growing her baby inside her. I know I'm weird but I think it's amazing!

Amplexus? More like... froggy style. (I'm really proud)

No Hank, your mum was pregnant for 18 months on account of you having a sibling XD

Crocodiles are also incredibly good mothers. This is weird because they are reptiles, and most other kinds of reptiles leave after the young hatch.

“Sponsored by Ms. Williard’s 6th Grade Science” - That’s so cute and an awesome teacher who gets her kids watching SciShow. I hope she’s not sponsoring it from her own funds, teachers already work so hard.

For Gastric Brooding Frogs, it would be pointless to say, "Your mom should've swallowed you instead".
