Be Glad You're Not an Elephant

Lizzie314

I just read that donkeys are pregnant for about a year, giraffes are pregnant for 450 days and Asian elephants are pregnant for 645 days—that's close to two years, and just for ONE baby! That helps put things into perspective, right? Nine months doesn't seem so bad now!
