Sexual is physical and asexual is non sexual
sexual reproduction is when there are 2 parents (mom and dad) the sex cells from both parents come together (egg from female sperm from male) and create a zygote, the baby. asexual reproduction is with only 1 parent. the parent cell duplicates making another cell. there are 3 types of asexual reproduction; budding, regeneration, and mitosis. budding is when the organism grows on the other organism and when it is fully developed it falls off. Ex: Hydra. Regeneration is an organisms ability to re-grow body parts. Ex: Earth worms or Starfish. Mitosis is when a cell duplicated. there are many steps to it.
