the eight year old Tidbit, a resident of the Norfolk Canyon Aquarium in Virginia, is not the first of her kind. The same group of scientists confirmed the first-ever virgin birth back in 2007 on a hammerhead shark living in Omaha, Nebraska.
Scientifically known as parthenogenesis, the virgin births have been confirmed using DNA-fingerprinting techniques identical to those used in human paternity testing.
For more information on Tidbit, the Shark Jesus, check out the latest issue of the Journal of Fish Biology. I hear they have an awesome centerfold.
