The Immaculate Conception of the Brownbanded Bamboo Shark

I saw this sign at Cal Academy last month. It completely blows my mind!

Sharks are fascinating creatures! Some give live birth, while others lay eggs. The egg cases shown here come from the Academy’s sharks. There is evidence of a different bamboo shark species successfully switching between sexual and asexual reproduction. I am studying whether our species has the same ability.

Just to be clear, she is talking about the possibility of human asexual reproduction!
