What animals with a long gestation or long period of pregnancy that you know so far? As humans, we need only about 9 months during pregnancy. Some of us probably already think that 9 months is a lot. The thing is that life is more difficult than that in the animal kingdom. Mainly because for some animals, they take longer times which sometimes up to years.

Imagine carrying a baby for 2 or 3 years, geez that is not a fun thing at all. However, it is nice to know about some of the animals with a long period of pregnancy. Below is the list of 22 animals with a long gestation period of pregnancy than humans. It is an interesting thing to know, and it is also good to read as well. I hope you enjoy it!
