Life finds a way. Anna, a 10-foot-long adult green anaconda in residence at Boston's New England Aquarium delivered some babies this past winter. That wouldn't be remarkable, except all the other snakes in the aquarium's Amazon exhibit are also female.

The aquarium staff re-checked the snakes' genders and scrutinized Anna's life history to confirm she hadn't been exposed to any adult males. Everything checked out, but they also sent off tissue samples for DNA analysis to confirm what they suspected: parthenogenesis.

Parthenogenesis is a type of asexual reproduction without fertilization. The term comes from the Greek for "virgin creation."

The birth of 18 baby green anacondas to a mother who has spent her entire life in an all - female exhibit has both surprised and taught a new lesson to those working at Boston's New England Aquarium.

The phenomenon is rare in reptiles, but not unheard of. In 2014, three baby green anacondas were born by parthenogenesis at a zoo in the UK. That makes the New England Aquarium home to the second confirmed case for these snakes.

Most of Anna's babies were stillborn. Of the three born alive, two survived. The aquarium staff has noticed two very different personalities in the snakes. The thinner is pretty chill, while the heavier one enjoys exploring its environment.

The bambinos are being kept behind the scenes for now. Green anacondas, which can weigh up to 550 pounds (250 kilograms), are the world's largest snake species, so these rare kiddos won't stay dainty for long.
