The Cape honey bee is unique among honey bee subspecies because workers can lay diploid, female eggs, by means of thelytoky, while workers of other subspecies (and, in fact, unmated females of virtually all other eusocial insects) can only lay haploid, male eggs. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capโ€ฆ
The Queen and female worker bees have a full set of chromosomes (diploid); while male drones are just unfertilized eggs (half set of chromosomes, haploid) allowed to hatch en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droโ€ฆ
There is an organism called Tetrahymena. A single-cell protozoan that has 2 nuclei. One diploid micronucleus, & one WHOPPING 45-ploid macronucleus! High-school Bio: we have haploid sex cells & diploid body cells. Their macronucleus has up to 300 Chromosomes vs. our 46 (diploid cell)! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tetโ€ฆ
Drones (male honey bees) are generated from unfertilized eggs and are therefore haploid! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droโ€ฆ
Turkeys can reproduce without a mate. This is called parthenogenesis, the doubling of haploid cells. tandfonline.com/doi/abs/1โ€ฆ
The jack jumper ant genome is contained on a single pair of chromosomes (males have just one chromosome as they are haploid), the lowest number known (or even possible) for any animal. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jacโ€ฆ
Male ants are haploid! en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antโ€ฆ
There are many ways in which sex is determined, including temperature and whether an organism is haploid or diploid. And that the platypus has 10 sex chromosomes en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sexโ€ฆ
