"I just saw these two DVD's on National Geographic Societies TV channel and they are just totally incredible! And, they're so good I've watched them both twice and am still learning from them! The things I just never knew and so very educational! GREAT VIEWING!!!"
Two of My Favorite Documentaries

"I saw both of these documentaries on the National Geographic TV Network, and they're two of the best documentaries I've ever seen. Both episodes use computer and ultrasound imagery to show how kittens and puppies are conceived and develop throughout the pregnancy. The narrator explains how each animal will use its developing parts, such as the cat's claws, and how breeding has been used to domesticate cats and dogs to human preferences.

IN THE WOMB: CATS shows the differences and similarities between a domestic Bengal cat and a lion, as well as brief comparison to a cheetah, while IN THE WOMB: DOGS compares three domestic breeds of dog (the Mastiff, the Golden Retriever and the Chihuahua) and wolves.

A small warning: There are some brief scenes of animals attacking other animals (generally for food), for those sensitive to such things, but they're not a major part of the films, and they're relevant to the topic.

These episodes in the IN THE WOMB series are chock full of fun and interesting information, not to mention downright cute. National Geographic did an excellent job."
Adorable Animals In The Womb

"Full disclosure: I have not watched the cat one yet, but the dog one has blown me away and I imagine the cat one will be just as good.

In The Womb: Dogs covers the conception of a dog, its similarities to its wolf ancestors, the evolution of the dog over 15000 years, its nose sensors, and the best part of all: what they look like in the womb for 63 days. Four dogs are followed and their ultrasounds shown. A wolf, a wawa, a golden retriever, and a mastiff. They even show the canine fetuses panting and attempting to run in the womb.

The show ends with some fascinating facts regarding the birthing of the pups and viewers witness the pups being born.

Highly recommended for all dog lovers and as for the cat one, I know it will be just as interesting, so cat lovers too."
