Anyone heard of this in other species?
How Does Absorb Fawns and Fetuses in Harsh Winters: How does a whitetail doe actually absorb a fawn if the conditions are bad enough to make this occur?
It's super common in the animal world (including human miscarriages)... resorbing fetuses/eggs when conditions aren't right, aborting fetuses for a variety of reasons (e.g. genetic abnormalities in fetus), abandoning offspring.
Dwights story happens in sharks!It's true. Dwight says so.
Yes, and many non-mammals too. Fish, reptiles, lobsters...Very well known and documented phenomenon. Cervids, bovids, canines, rodents….spans the spectrum. Hunting Husband did his graduate work on bison reproduction and observed it in bison that were in poor body condition. I don’t know the actual mechanism of how it occurs. A quick Google search suggests maybe we don’t have a very good idea of the “how”.
