Do identical twins even have identical fingerprints?

Gentian and Geanna, the main characters of Earth Drummer are twins, so I’ve compiled a few fun facts about them.

  1. Women who consume a lot of dairy products are more likely to conceive twins due to increased amounts of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) in their systems.
  2. Belly buttons are the easiest way to tell identical twins apart, as the belly button is not a genetic trait but a scar left behind by the removal of the umbilical cord at birth.
  3. Twins begin interacting with each other in the womb, with studies showing they are gentle towards each other and gesture at each other.
  4. Many twins invent their own language which often fades away after childhood as a common shared language is learnt.
  5. Identical twins may look the same, but they don’t have identical fingerprints.

Learn more about Gentian and Geanna in their character profiles, or find out more about their realm in the Cerean World Building post, Goddess Demeter post or read an extract from the book.

    No they don’t. I always wondered how twin babies were told apart.
