Budding is a form a sexual reproduction where a new organism is produced from an outgrowth of the parent. A growth starts on the parent which gets bigger and bigger until it cleaves and becomes a whole new organism, an identical clone. I knew this occured in plants and some animals like sponges, but I was surprised to witness this occurring in higher level organisms like Resusci Anne.

Makes sense, though. How else would we get Resusci Baby when there is no Resusci Andy.
