Recently the net became somewhat viral with gross pictures of a roach giving birth.

It resulted in comments like "Dude, I can look at photos of eye herpes and browse gore websites ALL DAY LONG, but I cannot make it past 0:16 of this video. So, so foul."

And yet roaches are not alone, nor are they possibly even the worst offenders, when it comes to animals giving birth.

Check out these seven videos. (Note: Your mileage may vary on whether some of these are disgusting or actually kinda cute).... 7. Housefly

6. Goat

5. Giraffe

4. Chimp

3. Snakes

2. Surinam Toad

1. Elephant Seal (Mother's reaction FTW)

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
