Behind Door #20: Dragon to Become Virgin Mom

20 December 2006 at 22:54 Leave a comment

When I opened my browser at work to day the headline feed from Discovery News, listed “Dragon to Become Virgin Mom” as one of the top news items of the day. I don’t remember which was more shocking: the dragon part or the virgin birth part.

Just before I clicked on the link, I managed to convince myself that it was some weird Christmas parody article—sort of like the Discover magazine April Fool’s story about the hot-headed naked ice borers that fooled me and at least one of my siblings.

By the the time I read the actual story—about parthenogenesis in komodo dragons—it seemed almost ho hum compared to what I had been imagining.
