A pregnancy can surprise when it happens in the animal kingdom, too! As the Telegraph reports, a mama lioness in Zimbabwe has given birth to a staggeringly large litter of eightcubs. Lionesses usually have only two cubs in a litter.
"This has never happened in the history of lions, the world over," shared Hillary Madzikanda, head of scientific services for Zimbabwe's parks authority. "It is actually a world record."
Even more incredibly, the lioness had been on a contraceptive pill when she conceived the octuplets!
Did you have any surprises during your pregnancies or while giving birth?
