didn't you learn anything from the movie jerassic park, sure it was a movie..but if you have alot of females and no males they will become fertile and produce young in hopes of a male. how come i came home with one snail from the fish store and now i have hundreds. frogs will reproduce if they can't find a male, it's something that's just bred into them, it shouldn't come as that much of a surprise, that's why we have to stop shark hunting. so there will be plenty of males, of course when they have shark fishing tournaments they don't care if it's a male or female..
