    Ok, sorry.. just a little biologist uppitiness 😀 (hey, never said we could spell).

    Parthenogenetic species are quite common in in lizard species (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthenogenetic). I think this is the first komodo dragon they found reproducing this way, but female-only species of lizards are around…

    and then there is the species of fish that has a lot of females and a few males.. but if some males die, the females turn into males.

    The natural world is anything but ‘natural’ (as per the definition of fundies).
