Hello Weston,

Even though identical twins look very much like each other, they start growing as two different people as soon as they become separate babies inside their mother. You already know that identical twins do not have identical fingerprints, and they also will not have identical tastes.

Do identical twins REALLY have identical DNA?

Thanks for your question!
