It is impossible.

There are no papers as no one has done research on such an impossible thing.

I understand there have been many examples of xenosurrogacy. I know for example that a California research institute conducted research leading to the birth of a baby gaur from a cow. I want a list of papers describing all such research in various species. Please be thorough.

A good answer but left me wanting more. The difficulty in long term after birth survival appears to be immunological which has been remedied easily enough according to your link. Would an excised uterus connected to ecmo with appropriate immunological injections furnish the possibility of successful births? Are there any links to this? I spoke to professor kuwabara formerly conducting this research in Japan and his research shows promise. There is much work also being done on exutero implantation. I wonder if you could elaborate further with links these new findings. Thnx.

most likely an excised uterus would not be enough. pregnancy takes a lot of active hormone activity to keep pregnancy viable.
