While ultrasounds are common for human, X-rays are typical for animals. This is because the photo is clearer, which is especially helpful because animals have more young than humans do. X-rays make it easier for veterinarians and owners to keep track.

Now that a photo of a pregnant dog X-ray rocked the Internet, one may wonder what other pregnant animal X-rays look like. Look no further:
