Some animals needn't have a relationship with others, they can reproduce by themselves!

Some animals needn't have a relationship with others, they can reproduce by themselves!


In the animal kingdom, most of the creatures are divided into male and female. With the cooperation of both sides, the genetic genes can be continued. However, some creatures have overcome the obstacles that need cooperation and complete reproduction by their own efforts, which is commonly known as parthenogenesis.
1. Scorpions can make dozens of little scorpions at a time
Scorpions are arachnids, most famous for their venomous spines on the top of their curly tails.
But what's more surprising is that some can reproduce without a partner.
There are 9 kinds of scorpions that can reproduce poisonous small scorpions in large numbers. The number of scorpions in a litter varies from two to dozens depending on the species.
2. Scientists are worried about the strange shark breeding
It is understood that several sharks can parthenogenesis, such as black fin shark, zebra shark, white spot bamboo shark and some hammerhead sharks.
This phenomenon is mainly observed in the captive environment. When females are isolated from males, females have the ability to change from sexual reproduction to parthenogenesis.
Although this may be an evolutionary feature that allows a species to survive with few mates, the researchers fear that it could lead to a lack of genetic diversity and endanger the long-term survival of wild sharks.
3. The environment in which the Komodo lizards live determines the way they reproduce
The Komodo lizard is as poisonous as a scorpion. Its mouth is filled with shark sharp teeth. It looks like a mini dinosaur. It is a kind of terrifying creature.
Combined with the Parthenogenesis of the Komodo monitor lizards, they are perhaps the most fascinating species on earth.
In this species, parthenogenesis is thought to have evolved to adapt to the environment, and in some places, there is always no mate.
The Parthenogenesis of a female baby is not strictly a cloning, but a doubling of the female egg gene, which is passed on to the offspring.
