  • Abstract The habit of gastric brooding is a form of parental care unique in the animal kingdom. Restrained individuals may release young from the stomach by a process of propulsive vomiting, but in the natural state and that documented here, the mother is passive, and the babies emerge from her mouth at intervals over a period of several days.
