When that Zoo burm story first came out there was a link that mentioned her type of parthenogenesis was a surprise in that the babies where genetic clones of here rather than half of her material doubled up as had apparently been seen before. The other kind produces only males as reportedly the ww combo isn't viable (snakes are like birds with females wz and males zz).

Seems like most years someone posts on the ball forum that the lone pet they have had for 10 years laid eggs. However, they never seem to have an incubator and most people tell them they are bad eggs and should be thrown out or must have been retained sperm. No one ever seems to come back and report hatching the eggs.

Too bad that European zoo policy didn't allow hatching the burms.
