Fun Facts!

Here are a couple fun (or not so fun) facts:

1. If horses become pregnant with twins, they will usually abort by the time they reach 6 months of pregnancy.

2. If pigs have three or less piglets during a pregnancy, they will usually abort.  In general, in order for them to have a litter, they must have more than three piglets.

what does abort mean.

Abort means that the babies die while still inside the mother. An animal can be pregnant, however, if she aborts she is no longer pregnant. Depending on how old the babies are, they are either reaborbed by the mother or pushed out like a normal baby would be.
