Who needs males? : Parthenogenesis is a well-known phenomenon among biologists. Some turkeys are able to have 'virgin births' but many animals including reptiles and fish have the same ability.

What is Parthenogenesis? It is a form of asexual reproduction in which growth and development of embryos occur without fertilization. In animals, parthenogenesis means development of an embryo from an unfertilized egg cell. This means reproduction without sex. It is most common among arthropods The word is defined from Greek and literally means 'virgin creation.'.

Mammalian Parthenogenesis? There has been no mammalian parthenogenesis reported. But a mouse has displayed parthenogenesis with some genetic tweaking. Who knows? This is an exciting field. Maybe one day men will be irrelevant in the creation process.

Really really loved reading this.

Apperntly, G+ isn't compatible with my old web browser... So now, I'm going to do what I've been debating for months and switch everything over to chrome and other Google services.
