He seems to have done his background research quite
well. One might in doubt just ask Prodohl for
references.

I *think* I discussed a suspected case of
parthenogetic reproduction in a rodent with some
buddies at university about 10 years ago, but I have
since tried to confirm that every now and then and
couldn't. (Of course, rodents are many)
