The first thing a baby giraffe experiences after being born is a 2 meter fall straight down to the ground. But within an hour, its standing, walking, and nursing on its own. And a blue whale calf, after nearly a year growing inside mom, can swim to the surface moments after being born. Human babies on the other hand? Were born unable to move or eat on our own, we cant communicate or fully sense our world, and we leak EVERYWHERE. If humans are so smart, why are our babies so un-smart? You may think its all about head size, but the real science is more complex.
