Life is miraculous, and watching it unfold in real time is even more so.
A new video from Netherlands-based filmmaker Jan van IJken now lets you watch a baby salamander twisting and turning as it grows in its transparent egg.
Simply called Becoming, this beautiful short film follows a single salamander embryo (Ichthyosaura Alpestris) as it grows and matures, from fertilisation right through to the final hatch.
In reality, the whole process takes a salamander about three weeks, but this particular film is condensed into just six minutes.
