Wonder Lizard? Ever wonder how Wonder Woman was born in a place free of men? Well, these reptiles may be the answer. Commonly known as leaping lesbian lizards, The New Mexico Whiptail lizards are all female. They reproduce without the need for a male. They begin when one female mounts, bites and rocks over the other. This rocking motion causes the bottom female to ovulate and release its eggs. A few weeks later, the ‘top’ female becomes the “bottom” and the alternate female ovulates and releases its own eggs. The new lizards are then ready within a year’s time to begin their very own ritual, making their sanctuary their very own “Paradise Island.”
