Pregnancy and birth

Giant pandas

Giant panda mothers have it easy, guys.  Although they tend to be around five feet tall and weigh anything from 100 kg to 150 kg, their babies are only four to six ounces in size when they’re born – less than one kilogram.  I bet that you don’t hear too many pregnant giant pandas complaining about having to lug around their heavy baby bumps.

Mind you, it could always be worse.  I could be an elephant, and be pregnant for 22 months.
