Ever been curious what this facial evolution might look like? Well, this in-utero footage of face development in the womb from the BBC is quite breathtaking, albeit a little creepy and weird at times, but beautiful.

Watch closely as a fetus develops from an indistinguishable blob into a recognizable human with facial features in the following very cool and trippy time lapse video.

WATCH the video of Face Development in the Womb:

Isn't it amazing how cells meld together into larger segments that then fit together like puzzles, which then become our unique faces? Truly miraculous! I had no idea.

Humans are awesome.
