Anaconda snakes born through parthenogenesis

Recommended Posts


"Two baby anaconda have been born into an Amazon exhibit at the New England Aquarium that has only adult females of the world’s largest snake species.

"DNA testing has confirmed that the 2-foot-long, green anaconda youngsters are the product of nonsexual reproduction. The extremely rare reproductive strategy is called parthenogenesis, which translated from its Greek word origins means virgin birth."
