The XY and ZW Systems of Sex Determination. Birds, butterflies, and snakes take everything we know about sex at the chromosomal level and stand it on its head.
The ZW sex-determination system is found in birds, some reptiles, and some insects and other organisms.

The best studied vertebrate sex chromosomes are the XY system of mammals, and the ZW systems of birds and snakes. These systems show superficial similarity in that
