Pink Baby Elephant

No, you aren't seeing things.

It's just something interesting from the MotherJones Blog- an in-utero picture of an elephant fetus.

According to the Blog, to get the image:

Ultrasonographers donned shoulder-length gloves and gave the pregnant mother an enema before inserting an ultrasound probe up the length of her rectum.

It takes a much better person than me to get up to their shoulders in a pregnant elephants' anus to give it an enema, and then inserting an anal probe. All for the progress of Science!
