I did state that it was smaller than udosuk, it is also smaller than you are Mike.
Also, that it was wetter at the beginning than at the end.

Whoops! Forgot about that bit. Perhaps Udosuk is 4,196 miles tall?

Is it a very small Borg (Star Trek) standing in a bath?
(I'm sure I'll get the Trekkies correcting me on that)

Ha! Has re'born had a recent experience of this?

edit:
I was convinced it was sperm coz it fit all your clues but have just found out that a even a hamster produces over 3,000 so it can't be that.

Borgs (of any size) are cyborgs; part organic, part machine: need I say more about water and electrical circuits? I suppose that a Borg standing in a bath of water is a demonstration to show that "resistance is futile".

The answer to your question is - No.

If you're referring to his new (congratulations) arrival, then no, it's not a baby.

It is not "This Weekend or Jelly/Jello.

Time for a reprise:
My beginning is the ending of others.

Clues:
It is a physical object.
The main subject is not of the same type as the "others".
The "What am I " subject is distinct, it exists as an individual item, although it can be thought of as part of an entity.
This physical object can be touched, but not by you or I.
It is not lifeless but has no life.
Although it is large, it is smaller than you are.
The answer comprises two words. One <6 letters, one >6 letters.
There is an alternate answer which has 5 letters.
The "subject" is wetter at the beginning than at the end.
Over 700 species inhabit the "subject".
There is some form of "Flow" from the beginning to the end

Somethings it is not:
The word Start
Gordon Brown
Dalai Lama
Undertaker
It is not a bad person
Timeline
The Terminator
Realsudoku
Democracy in the Midle East
The Iraq War
Big Brother
Pulp Fiction
Star Wars
The Mobius Strip
The age of Aquarius
The year of the dog
The Patriot Act
Captain Scarlet
NSPD 51
The phrase - "The answer to this puzzle"
It is not a negative feedback system.
The Universe.
There is nothing astronomical about the "subject" at all.
It's nothing to do with computer software or hardware.
River Amazon.
A very small Borg (Star Trek) standing in a bath.
It's not a baby.
This Weekend.
Jelly/Jello.
M-is-s - unmarried woman.


I'll let you digest this whilst I think up another clue.

I was thinking of something like "Hauptschlagader", I couldn't tie the ends together though

The "Hauptschlagader" or "main artery" is the Aorta, which distributes oxygenated blood from the heart around the body, the deoxygenated blood's return to the heart, is via the "Inferior and Superior Vena Cava".
I'm not sure if you could say deoxygenated blood is less wetter than oxygenated blood.
Therefore "Hauptschlagader" is not correct.

Mike, a very interest answer, wet at the beginning, dry at the end and flows, but again, size matters.

It is not a lake.

Mike have edited previous post for "unmarried woman M-is-s"

Oxygenated blood, per se, isn't any wetter than the deoxygenated variety but the blood in the aorta is arguably wetter than that in the inferior vena cava as not all that the heart pumps out returns via the venous system, a small portion being carried back as fluid in the lymphatic channels and some exiting the body via the kidneys and urinary tract.

The aorta is naturally smaller than the person as it is contained within the person and it shouldn't be touched by you or I (unless you're a vascular surgeon). It's beginning, however, can't really be described as being the end of others.

The beginning of the Aorta is the "Heart", The heart pumps blood through the Aorta & receives blood from the large veins mentioned above.

There is is a beginning & end there:?::?::!::!::idea:

You could arguably have a BIG heart that can't be touched althogh it is still the size of a clinched fist:!:
