Fact of the Day: Sleepy Birth


Certain mother bears that go into hibernation may give birth. Except when they do, they stay in hibernation. The cub will nurse long before the mother wakes up in the spring.

If I could sleep through birth, I would be more likely to have a kid. Not a lot more likely, but more likely
