    Parthenogenesis is a form of asexual reproduction in which an egg develops without fertilization. According to a University of Wisconsin web page, this process is rare, but not unheard of, among reptiles. The link below cites a female python from a zoo in Amsterdam that was able to produce eggs in isolation from any males for five consecutive years. In this case, “healthy embryos have been observed in 25-30% of the eggs every year.” So there may be a chance that your python’s eggs will prove to be viable.
