4. The African Black Eagle is a Brutal Mom who plays favorites, She usually lays two eggs, but will feed only one.  The fed chick, once it is strong enough, will peck its sibling to death.  All the while Mom looks on… seemingly enjoying the carnage! 

3.  Motherhood may actually increase athletic performance in endurance athletes.  It is believed that recent moms experience changes in reproductive hormone levels which actually aid in water retention,  reduce muscle soreness and even offset fatigue.
