This amazing high definition video takes an up close look at the miracle of birth. You will see a gravid female guppy ( technically it's a female Orchid Endler ) giving birth to her 37 babies. There is lots of information, supported by video clips, that I am sure will amaze even the most jaded guppy/endler enthusiast. This video took a couple months to make and is one of my best productions yet.

I have scoured youtube for videos of this type, and this is the best one I have ever seen. Please give it a view and leave a comment on my youtube page telling me what you think.

That is awesome. I was always amazed that livebearing developed in fishes
Thank you for taking the time to watch my video. livebearers have a great reproductive strategy. Well-developed young ready to take care of themselves from the get-go ( ovoviviparity), and with superfetation the females are pretty much permanently pregnant.
Plus no need for elaborate courtship rituals, nest defending, little male involvement, etc. .
