Peter Chinn's Images of Animals in Utero are Computer Generated

These eye-catching computer generated pictures of animals in utero show imaginative ultrasound mock-ups. Created and conceived by producer Peter Chinn for a National Geographic documentary, the images depict animal fetuses in their mothers' wombs, or depending on the species, in their eggs. The screenshots are both fascinating and unsettling.

Chinn used a combination of dimensional ultrasound scans, very small cameras and computer graphics to imagine these animals in utero. While the embryonic images are not entirely real, they do offer a realistic view of what the various animals would look like in their early stages of development. Animals featured include an elephant, snake, dolphin, possum, leopard, penguin, chihuahua and horse. The engrossing graphics of the elephant and dolphin are particularly striking.
