Bowerbird: Decorator, Singer, Dancer… Ideal Boyfriend?

It’s Wednesday! You know what that means! Time to learn about something wild and wacky about that part of the animal world we don’t think about much.

Yippee! I had time, and actually remembered, to make a hump day post this week! Even though I am still on vacation in France with my family I am finally getting enough internet to blog. Lets discuss virgin birth, or, parthenogenesis. Most people have heard of the legend of the Virgin Mary, and if you’re not familiar with Christianity at all, most religions have virgin birth myths.
