Admittedly it's not quite what people expected...
What happened in Jurassic Park was that all the dinosaurs were female, so there – supposedly – wasn't any risk of them breeding, but some of them changed sex and became male.
That's my evening ruined.
So basically, some animals that lay eggs can reproduce on their own?
This definitely feels like something I should have known existed before.
we're a species of dimwitted fuck-ups. Our leadership is failed this planet. The Lord has switched to another chosen species. I, for one, welcome our new reptile overlords.
was right all along :/
I've known about it for years
I've read it a few times
Im sure its in the david attenborough books even.
and I think that birds might be able to too (in captive flocks anyway)
"just a little bit more sand on top of those.....or a little less"
it clearly states that all known virgin births have occurred in captivity, where as this is the first to be documented in the wild... That's where the news lies.
as it is obvious that observations will pick up things quicker in captivity and that conditions where unusual distributions can occur, so it is not that it was ever doubted that it could happen in the wild, just not observed.
Its not a suprise or anything, no biologist would have doubted that this could occur in the wild, like I say though, just not observed.
or expectation, it merely confirms it.
the second coming
