Well, for those that scoff at my fear of never finding a wife as irrational…they are probably right. But it still doesn’t take anything away from this piece of science news.
Research on the perished pup found that it had no paternal DNA. Additionally, it possessed half of its mother’s genetic diversity. Combined, the data indicates the mother gave birth through a non-sexual mode of reproduction known as automatic parthenogenesis.
It may be, in fact, only a matter of time before I become outdated. Thanks for nothing, Darwin.
