Scientific shock: first identical twin puppies discovered!

They found them in South Africa. Most dogs have 2 to 12 pups per time, but they all come from different eggs and have differences. However, these two were born from one egg. Here is what the scientists say:

“To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of monozygotic twinning in the dog confirmed using DNA profiling."

All their body cells are identical. The color and looks are identical, too, like those of human twins. Till this time humans and armadillos were the only species able to produce identical twins. In nature, such instances are extremely rare.

So, these puppies are unique, indeed. Their mama was not able to deliver the pups naturally, and they had to do the C-section to the dog. When they got the pups out, they discovered they shared one placenta. It’s a very unusual thing for canines.

Looks are not enough to prove the fact, but the blood test is. They ran it and discovered – puppies’ DNA was the same! Here is what the owner says:

“There have been rumors about twins in dogs before. We just happened to be lucky enough to be able to confirm it genetically.”

These cuties are unique, indeed!
