Some girls are so good at having babies that they don’t need any help from boys.

As with a number of lizard species, the female Bynoe’s gecko can produce an unfertilized clutch of eggs which will result in young who are genetically identical to her.

And certain girls can even make boy babies without ever having had sex with boys.

See all the images and text by downloading or purchasing Crime Against Nature, the book. The making of Self-replicating is shown on my blog.
