Scientists hail Komodo dragon's virgin birth

A British zoo on Wednesday announced the virgin birth of five Komodo
dragons, giving scientists new hope for the captive breeding of the
endangered species.

In an evolutionary twist, the newborns' eight-year-old mother,
Flora, shocked staff at the Chester Zoo in northern England when she
became pregnant without ever having a male partner or even being
exposed to the opposite sex.
