    A goat giving birth is much harder than a human. A mother goat's newborn is proportionally the same as a human mother giving birth to an average sized first grader.

    Just some info for ya'll. I'd post a video, but well, I'll wait untill a mod says I can.

    No, smaller. I've seen a video (not youtube crap) [​IMG]
    Goat's birthing and living through it truly is a miracle if the mother and/or kid (baby goats are called "kids") survives.

    We're probably skipping on that, considered that there'll be lots of blood et similia, and that we have lots of 11-14yo on the site.

    1 - The video has NO blood actually, just a really big baby goat coming out of a mother goat. That's another difference between humans and some animals.
    2 - Kindergarteners watch animals giving birth at zoos. It's considered ok by many many parents.

    Well, if you assure me there's nothing excessive in it, post it then [​IMG]

    If someone thinks that it's too much, feel free to report the post [​IMG]

    No blood/gore at all, I assure you.

    Still, I think I'll only post it if there is some members here actually want me to post it. If not, well, at least they know the fact now still.

    just google "goat giving birth", is what I say. Works for the few who want to see it and not risking scared little kids. First video found shows it in all of its grotesqueness.

    There are several that are horrible angles, don't show it pre-birth (so you can't tell just how big it is), skip several segments, etc. Finding one from start to finish with no cuts, and no camera shifting, is actually really hard.

    wiki says a goat giving birth is called 'kidding'.
    they aren't serious while giving birth.

    Humans have a lot of problems, and women give birth to much more immature babies than other mammals for a reason. Thinner pelvis means the skull has to still be soft to squeeze through. Goats admittedly don't have it as easy as most, but still much much better than people.
