From: Virgin Komodo dragon gives birth

Quote:
MANCHESTER, England - A British zoo announced Wednesday the virgin birth of five Komodo dragons, giving scientists new hope for the captive breeding of the endangered species.

In an evolutionary twist, the newborns’ eight-year-old mother Flora shocked staff at Chester Zoo in northern England when she became pregnant without ever having a male partner or even being exposed to the opposite sex.

The article mentions nothing about artificial insemination, although it does say that the dragon was never exposed to the opposite sex.

Are we witnessing immaculate conception, or did the scientists just not study the dragon as closely as they think?
