African Rock laying eggs without a male

I have a eight year old African Rock who has laid six eggs without ever having been with a male! i called Bob Clark and he said it has happened with Retics,Burms and Boas but he has never heard of an African Rock ever doing this. i sent him pictures and he said she may be the first in this country to ever have done this. does anyone know of any other African Rock ever doing this? p.s. her eggs are infertile at least the ones laying outside of her body,she may have more coiled up with her.

Sorry I don't have any useful information about rock pythons, but there was a post a while back about a rattlesnake that gave birth six years after being with a male and there was a general discussion on the topic of parthogenesis that might be of interest


Any pictures would be nice!

Very interesting!

I do have a normal female ball python that was paired in the 2013/14 season and dropped 9 good eggs back in 2014. She hasn't been with a male since but she gave me another 7 viable eggs last April. Another few weeks and I'll know if it was a partho clutch or retained sperm.

She is still clutched around her eggs. i don't think any will hatch,so i will probably remove them in a few days. like i said,she has NEVER been with a male! i have had her since she was only eighteen inches long! anyway,i will keep everyone posted. thanks!
