It is the stuff of science fiction - fearsome females becoming pregnant without any contact with males.

In movie blockbuster Jurassic Park, scientists thought they could control the dinosaurs by only rearing females. However, the cloned creatures ran amok after perfecting the art of reproducing without any male input.

Now, scientists have shown that sharks are capable of performing such a trick of nature. Genetic analysis of a bonnethead shark pup has revealed it is the first example of a virgin birth in the sharkworld.

The female baby - which died from a stingray bite just hours after being born - did not contain a single strand of male genetic material.

Instead, she had inherited all of her genes from her mother.

Strangely enough this happened in the aquarium. I suppose the fish keepers weren't prepared for it.

I wonder if this could be faked in humans by mating two identical twins if the offspring were female?

Apparently the shark was able to feed 5,000 other sharks with just some people and loaves.

If the twins were two hot chicks, I'm all for it.

I wonder if there's a world somewhere where men don't exist and women produce semen in their saliva. If so, I want to be an astronaut and discover that world.

I would just observe their culture. It would be inappropriate to interact.

I would have added that their tongues, when aroused, swell to a length of twelve inches while remaining intensely flexible and strong. Something similar to a little elephant's trunk.

We can't do that, because then they wouldn't see me a sexual god descended from the heavens.

They will if your sperm isn't compatible.
