it is not unheard of....is common among inverts but not heard of so much in reps...it has been documented in some species af agamid, chameleon. also in night lizards and rock lizards..
the whiptail lizards are the best known though and ten species of this lizard need no mating at all to produce viable offspring. all babies are female and in turn produce more females...
raeson why they do it is so they can reproduce quickly to fill a niche. however if things begin to change there is not much chance of the species adapting and nay die out....
never heard of it in komodo though..can see a couple of well placed calls coming on!
hope this helps! :)

well kinda...although strictly jurassic park was based on the fact that they used amphibian dna to fill the gaps..parthgenesis is more common in amphibs!
