A female white spotted bamboo shark at the Belle Isle Aquarium in Detroit surprised zookeepers in July by giving birth to two babies. Why the surprise? It was a virgin birth: She hadn't been near a male for six years.
The mother, who has been housed in a tank with a female brown banded bamboo shark for the last six years, laid a clutch of eggs in April.

On the contrary, a virgin birth in nature actually hinders the christian point of view. According to the bible it is something done by god, but if it occurs naturally in other species, that would give less legitimacy to the claim of Jesus the son of god, and more to the claim of a fatherless son.
