Asexual reproduction is a mode of reproduction by which offspring arise from a single parent, and inherit the genes of that parent only; it is reproduction which does not involve meiosis, ploidy reduction, or fertilization. The offspring will be exact genetic copies of the parent

a couple things in this vid
first,there is an aphid squirting an aphid out its rear.
a bit of a shock for me as i was clueless about asexual reproduction at that moment,lol
now that i studied it abit,not so shocking.
some sharks and snakes can do it





some spiecies can reverse gender.crazy shit right there,lol

Sequential hermaphrodites (dichogamy) occur in species in which the individual is born as one sex, but can later change into the opposite sex.

sure puts a spin on the old question,which came first? the chicken or the egg.
clearly it is an irrelavent question,lol

anyways,at 1:59 you can see through one of the tiny aphids and it has what appears, as a next generation aphid inside its thorax

i thought it was cool,lol
