How do animals reproduce asexually?

Most complex animals do not reproduce asexually. Single celled animals reproduce asexually by primary division (splitting into two equal sized daughter cells) or by budding (producing a second cell that is much smaller than the parent cell). Both these methods of reproduction produce offspring that are genetically identical to the parent.

All male (drone) honey bees are produced through parthenogensis.

Some more complex animals can reproduce via parthenogenesis this includes some species of sharks, Komodo Dragons and other reptiles. This generally occurs when there are no males available. Depending on the genetic makeup of the sex chromosomes of each species all offspring produced are either male or female.
