How could I have missed this news?
Somehow, Flora, a Komodo dragon at Chester Zoo in northern England became pregnant. She's never even been "exposed" to a male komodo dragon.
"While it wasn't unusual for female dragons to lay eggs without mating, scientists understood they were witnessing something important when they realized Flora's eggs had been fertilized.
"DNA paternity tests confirmed the lack of male input, although the brood are not exact clones of their mother."Thanks to Susan Smith Nash for pointing it out.
