IT ISN'T A MIRACLE!
I bring good tidings of great joy for all adherents of virgin births.
At long last we have scientific proof that you can screw yourself thanks to an 8 year old Mother in Manchester, England. Her name is Flora and she gave birth to five little boys..without being fertilised by a male. Imagine being single gal, minding your own business, and then poof you're pregnant and they are all boys!
Flora is a Komodo Dragon, one of only 4,000 left in the entire world. The virgin birth was achieved through an asexual process known as parthenogenesis which has been recorded before in other reptiles.
There are two eggs left to hatch and I am willing to bet that they are also both males.
Now this adaptation to overcoming scarce reproductive partners obviously begs the question:
If this happened on an isolated corner of her native Indonesian Island would Flora then reproduce with her boys (eeeew)
or could she make a batch of females for them (eeeew)
...either way it is quite incestuous.
Reptiles generally only produce males if environmental circumstances are favorable.
Flora will need some names for her boys.
Here in Whateverpeg the most popular names of 2006 were:
Aidan, Alexander, Dylan, Ethan, Joshua, Liam, Logan, Mathew, Noah & Owen
If the last two eggs are girls (doubters):
Abigail, Alexis, Ava, Chloe, Emily, Emma, Hailey, Hannah, Madison & Sarah.
