No. Identical twins are identical. Fraternal twins are not.

In identical twins, the DNA is identical, which is what makes them identical. In Fraternal twins it is not.

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 twins, also called fraternal twins, develop from two different fertilized eggs.

If they were not then they would not be called identical twins!

Yes, they are identical twins, monozygotic twins, born ten minutes apart. They share the same genome, they are identical genetically, they are identical twins.

Identical twins are created when 1 eggs splits into 2. Conjoined twins are the result of identical twins not separating all the way.

do identical or non identical twins share the same placenta

identical twins have the same genes from the same parents. Non identical twins have different genes.

Identical twins. Although horses sometimes have twins I'm not sure if they have identical twins.

Identical twins are formed from a single egg that splits into two. Fraternal twins are formed from two separate eggs that are both separately fertilized. So identical twins have identical DNA, and fraternal twins do not.

Identical twins are formed when one fertilized eggs splits. Non-identical twins are formed when two separate eggs are fertilized.

i personally know a set of identical twins. BOTH of them had twins. i don't know if their twins were identical too.

Some people think identical means all the same. It does. They call identical twins identical twins because the are almost identical. All finger prints are different.

No. By definition, identical twins are the same sex.

the chances of having identical twins are about 1 in 300.

No. Conjoined twins are always identical twins. Identical twins are always the same sex.

Twins that develop from a single zygote are defined as identical twins.

With identical twins, a fertilized egg splits in two. With non-identical twins, more than one egg is fertilized.

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 eggs.

There are differences in both DNA and fingerprints.The Claim: Identical Twins Have Identical DNA

They have as much chance of having twins as anyone else, regardless of who their partner is.

Identical twins develop from a single egg that splits into two.Identical twins can be so similar that their parents cannot tell them apart.

Identical twins are formed by the separation of the same embryo containing same genetic coding. thus the the twins are identical as formed from the same embryo. But this is not the case in the non-identical twins as they are formed from the individual embro each having different genetic coding.
