What are the disadvantages of being an identical twin?
There are quite a few disadvantages. For example people might think you are the same person as your twin and get mixed up. Also people might expect you to act the same as your twin, or / and wear the same clothes. Also people might stare at you in the street if you are with your twin.

The same as anyone else. No genetic marker has been found yet related to identical twins.
Luck. There is no way of making someone have identical twins. There are two primary types of twins, Identical and Fraternal. Identical twins occur when the egg splits af…ter fertilization. To date no indication of a genetic link has been found. Anyone has a chance, though small, of having identical twins. Fraternal twins occur when more than one egg is dropped during ovulation. This trait can be inherited from the mother's side of the family. Studies have shown that the chances are also increased by being overweight or older. Fertility drugs also make this more likely to happen.
Yep. It can only happen in girls, though - and it's very rare. See: http://m.theglobeandmail.com/life/parenting/why-identical-twins-can-look-different/article4186733/?ser…vice=mobile and http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/twofold/200902/why-some-identical-female-twins-are-different
Identical twins do not have identical fingerprints.. Identical twins (also known as monozygotic twins) are formed when a single fertilised egg splits in two after conception.… As they are from a single zygote, the two individuals share the same genetic makeup, meaning that their DNA is practically indistinguishable. However, a fingerprint is not entirely dependent on genetics. Along with other physical characteristics, the outcome is determined by the interaction of the individual's genes and the environment as it develops in the uterus. The ultimate shape of the fingerprints is believed to be influenced by there environmental factors, such as blood pressure, nutrition, position in the womb and growth rate of the fingers at the end of first trimester. Therefore, you will find similar patterns of whorls and ridges in the fingerprints of identical twins, but there will also be differences, just like there are differences between the fingerprints on any individual's hands. No, because fingerprints are formed randomly when a baby touchesthe inside of the womb. Fingerprints are unique to each and everyperson. . No, they do not.
Identical twins are formed when one fertilized eggs splits. Non-identical twins are formed when two separate eggs are fertilized.
The sperm was absorbed by the egg then after the egg split into 2yet still carry same DNA
Identical twins are identical because they both came from the same egg. The term "Identical" is used as they look very much like each other and anybody can say that they are t…wins by just looking at them.
Identical twins are formed when an egg fertilised by a sperm splits in half to form two different embryos.
Monozygotic (Identical or Maternal) twins are identical because they came from the same egg and were split after conception but before fetal development. Identical twins have …nearly identical DNA, however, environmental factors may switch genes on and off, differences are more pronounced as the twins age. Dizygotic (Fraternal) twins are not identical. They are as different as any other siblings.
To be strict, if you look real close, they haven't. But their genes are very, very similar. And the why is because identical twins start out as one fertilized egg that sp…lits and produce two babies. One fertilized egg, one set of genes. Identical twins have the same DNA because they were created when a fertilised egg split in half - so they are two identical copies of the original. Identical twins have different fingerprints because fingerprints are formed in the womb and have nothing to do with their DNA. Obviously both twins couldn't be in the same position in the womb, so their fingerprints will vary. Hope that s your question.
Identical twins can be identical, but not all the time. Sometimes one may have a pointy ear ect. But they are still identical twins. Identical twins can supposidly feel what t…hey're twin is feeling, like, if one twin were to be in panic, the other one may feel it too. Identical twins are also known to finish each others sentences and mirror each others movements. I'll use John and Edward Grimes for examples. (Sorry if you don't like them, but I am a big fan and know a lot about them and I can't think of any other twin examples that I can use) When they were babies, they slept in cots next to each other. One night, Edward pulled the blankets right over his head, and his twin brother, John Grimes, started screaming his head off until his mother came and seen what Edward had done. Identical twins usually chirp into their twins sentence. For an example of that go here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=57ek7QPx2G4 You will find they keep interupting each other, I've heard that twins usually do that to gain attention, having a twin and all. Hope that helped. ^^
If you're already alive, you can't.
They have as much chance of having twins as anyone else, regardless of who their partner is.
Some twins are identical twins, other are not identical twins. Identical twins develop from a single fertilized egg that subsequently splits into two zygotes. Non-identical tw…ins, also called fraternal twins, develop from two different fertilized eggs.
Twins are not necessarily identical. They can be fraternal as well. Identical twins result when one fertilized egg splits in two. Fraternal twins result from two fertilized eg…gs.
No it is due to slight separation through processing.
