Even if you are a twin, or think you know a lot about them, I’m guessing that you’re still in for an education (and a surprise!) when you check out this list of weird facts about all types of twins.

If two eggs are released by the woman in one month, then they can be fertilized by different men. It’s happened before!

Imagine Male 1 and Male 2 are twins. So are Female 1 and Female 2. If Male 1 and Female 1 have kids together, and so do Male 2 and Female 2, then 1s’ offspring would be considered the cousins of the 2s’ offspring. But since they would have the same genetic material, they could all be considered siblings. Weird, right?

Twins’ moms live longer than individual kids’ moms. Some think that this is because the mom is extra-healthy, evolution passes on her great genes to one kid instead of two.

Taller people have more growth hormone, and that hormone increases the birthrate of twins.

Five times as likely. Weird, right?

They start reaching for each other as early as 14 weeks.

They mimic each other perfectly as they grow up.

The texture of the amniotic sac dictates this, not genetics.

No one’s too sure about this one!

This generally arises from complications…

Since their DNA is 99.9% the same, they could just both deny it and the court might not be able to prove who the perp is!

Oh wait — that’s not a little-known fact. But we had to share it anyway.
