I’m staying out of zoos from now on

Below’s a video of an elephant giving birth. It is not beautiful. It is not the miracle of birth; it is the Clockwork Orange meets Alien meets Peter Jackson of birth. It is, honestly, the most horrifying thing I have ever seen.

Six minutes; descends to gibbering horror at 0:54, and doesn’t come back up.

Though I don’t know the particular circumstances of birth in my own species (Youtube apparently is wussy about showing of humans what they will gladly show of other animals), this video makes me wish I’d never been born.

Afflicted on us all by PZ.
