New species! All-female mutant crayfish taking over the world, scientists say

A new species appeared .... just like that!
All-female mutant crayfish taking over the world, scientists say

The self-cloning marbled crayfish is a relatively new species, but the all-female crew is quickly multiplying.

According to National Geographic, the asexual creatures all have one female ancestor: the slough crayfish, a species often found in Georgia and Florida.

It all started in 1995, when a slough crayfish was taken from the Everglades to an insect fair in the U.S. For a reason scientists haven’t quite pinpointed yet, that slough crayfish became an entirely new species: Procambarus virginalis, or marbled crayfish.

When the crayfish began rapidly multiplying, the owner realized taking care of the offspring would be impossible, and took the crayfish to pet shops. Eventually, the pet trade made its way to Europe. Now, they’re taking over the world.

Yup, another new species: gay frogs. I'll bet they reproduce through cloning, too.

Well, I'm sure Muslims and evangelicals can agree on getting rid of the buggers ASAP, so, in a way gay frogs are a blessing.

Mud bugs. Scavengers turning detritus into tasty morsels for human consumption. Just like shrimp!
