18. Monk Seal

Doesnt this just say it all! Mommy is not happy that her kids are still playing around inside and are not yet ready to pop out! Shes a hairless sphynx cat and her expression is classic. And shes big! Their pregnancies last around 65 days, and this was probably taken during those last few weeks of frustration!
This ferret is fat! But its not because of a bad diet, its because shes about to pop out probably around eight little ferret babies. Though they can have as many as 18, and judging from the size of this gal she may be leaning towards that number! Luckily they only have 6 weeks of pregnancy to endure.
14. Guinea Pig
Heres a big and pregnant guinea pig who ended up having a whopping five pups (three is the average). Their gestation period usually lasts from 59 to 72 days.
