Parthenogenesis is a particular form of asexual reproduction in which females produce eggs that develop without fertilization. It is seen in aphids, rotifers, and some other invertebrates, as well as in some plants. Among vertebrates, there are several genera of fish, amphibians, and reptiles. For example, about fifteen species of whiptail lizard reproduce exclusively by parthenogenesis.

Parthenogenesis,
Technical jargon for
Virginal birth,
Happens in nature, an
Idiosyncracy
Normal in some species,
Still provokes mirth.
