Excellent find!

It has been a well known theoretical fact for a while that a human female can conceive children without the need for a man.

The theory is that a woman can use one of her ovums and fertilise it with the DNA of another cell (from her own body, or from her female partner's).

Good news for homosexual women :)

wow virgin birth? They should named the shark Jesus.. just joking no offence meant to any1 :wink: could it not have been due to any chemicals in the water? its a fact that some fish react strangely with chemical waste dumped in the oceans which result in hormonal imbalance which means they end up changing sex. Just thought i'd point that out..
