Anaconda Gives 'Virgin Birth' At New England Aquarium

According to a report by Huffpost, a Boston aquarium has confirmed that the surprise birth of anaconda snakes to a mother living with only other females was an instance of parthenogenesis, a word that originates from the Greek words meaning 'virgin birth.'

Anna, an 8 year-old, 10 foot-long green anaconda living in the New England Aquarium's Amazon exhibit, lived with only female snakes, a decision intended to prevent her from reproducing.
