A tiny creature that has not had sex for 100 million years has overturned the theory that animals need to mate to create variety.

Bdelloid rotifers are microscopic animals, less than four times the length of a human sperm, are all female, yet have evolved into different species that fill different ecological niches. Two sister species were found to be living together on the body of a water louse. One of them specialized in living around the louse’s legs; the other stayed close to the chest.

In view of these findings, may we assume that those who practice abstinence-only will also find their ecological niche on the same water louse? Since the legs, body, and chest are currently occupied, the question remains: What other louse real estate remains unoccupied? Any suggestions?
