7 Extreme Animal Moms

5611 ratings | 131803 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.

Surinami toads are goddamn disgusting.

Anyone noticing a constant very high tone while watching this video?

I was eating at the beginning of this video, now I wonder if I will ever eat again....

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.

Hornbills... sounds like me and my kids when I was the stay at home parent. Might not have been the best housekeeper.

Transition at the beginning was a little fast, made it sound like you were calling your mom an elephant :P

One of the photographers was called karlermosin könig which I believe means crimson king, also there is a character in the dark tower named the crimson king

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.
Jer Thode (5 days ago)
Indeed, how DID the gastric brooding frog evolve? Think about it. Let's use our brains here... *gears turning*

Now I look forward to the top fathers for Fathers Day.

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 thought this was anime moms
So... if I don't reproduce, I am not alive... ?

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?
Peter Ricciardi (5 days ago)
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..."

Caecilian Mother: So, how's the meal? Caecilian Child: Pretty good. Caecilian Mother: *Silently sobs while child is eating her alive* Caecilian Mother (Later): AAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! Goodbye Cruel World

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?
Tyler Forrest (6 days ago)
"how did this evolve" lol best quote. mother nature is just so odd

My mom always said that I matriphagyed her soul.

Surinam Toads are what gave me Trypophobia
Alabama Liberal (6 days ago)
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!
Hawkorvan (6 days ago)
Amplexus? More like... froggy style. (I'm really proud)
Jenny Sweeney (6 days ago)
No Hank, your mum was pregnant for 18 months on account of you having a sibling XD
CINDER AJ (6 days ago)
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.

Only if Elephants reproduced faster they could rise up against the humans and create a world with Elephant 🐘 cars and Elephant planes.

If I've learned anything it's to not try to revive an extinct species using frog DNA.

Hmmm... The Jurassic franchise ppl clearly missed a great opportunity here. Imagine Rexy vomiting out baby rexes.

me: ugh why do human babies have to come out like that, can't they be already fully developed and functional? me remembering elephants: uhh... never mind 9 months is a perfectly reasonable time thank you

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

I love momma crocs tho (or was it alligators? Either way)...they put they're young in their mouth gently [with all those terrifying teeth]. It's so sweet.

Also a shout out to *EARWIG* mothers, who exhibit a VERY RARE maternal behavior for nonsocial insects!! Mom cares for her young from the time she lays the eggs until after a juvenile's second molt. The nymphs follow her like little puppies! They eat rotting plant material, so they're beneficial recyclers. I know it can be startling to see a brown creepy-crawly with several smaller whitish little versions of herself foraging through your garden, but please try to resist killing them!
