11 Baby Animals All Grown Up

Change is inevitable, especially in nature. Here are some amazing natural transformations, and be sure to check out the all new 2014 Kia Soul, because change is natural.

Okay, so they’re never actually bald. Still though, what a difference!

2. Echidna

Where do all those spikes come from? The world may never know.

3. Axolotls

These little guys are a type of salamander, and they are totally transparent when they’re babies!

4. Flamingos

This transformation is, interestingly enough, due to chemistry. The pigment from the algae and crustaceans they eat eventually turns their feathers a pink color.

5. Aye-Ayes

Aye-ayes go from bald babies into furry adults. A tad weird, but still cute!

6. Parrots

These gray guys grow up to be some of the most colorful birds in the world!

These little lumpfish (also known as “lumpsuckers”) will grow up to essentially look like swimming dinosaurs. Female lumpfish can grow up to be 24in long and weigh up to 20lbs!

Only the males grow these signature blue and green feathers to attract females. Hard to tell they were ever gray little babies.
