Lambs with spinal cords that had been severed near the head at 50 days of gestation were born after a shortened gestation of about 128 days. Lambs with severed spinal cords born as a twin with an intact lamb had a normal gestation of 148 days. The presence of an intact spinal cord or the signals that it might carry apparently influence the length of gestation in the ewe.
