Recently, there have been two separate cases of parthenogenesis in Komodo Dragons at two separate zoos. The process parthenogenesis refers to a female being able to reproduce without being fertilized by male sperm.
It is considered a rare phenomenon and one in which very few species can do. Other documented animals that have successfully reproduced by parthenogenesis are some snakes, fish, a monitor lizard, and even a turkey.
Flora is a Komodo Dragon at the Chester Zoo in the UK and hatched eight eggs having never been in contact with male Komodo Dragons. She had originally produced eleven eggs, but three died and it allowed scientists to examine them for genetic testing. They proved that the offspring weren’t genetic copies of Flora, but their genetic makeup was only from her.
Sungai is from the London Zoo and she produced four offspring without being in contact with males for two years. Both sets of offspring are growing healthy and normal.
They can't do away with males, however. All parthenogenesis reproductions yield only male babies in Komodo Dragons due to the chromosomes of the female.
