Twins

Gemelos son idénticos y mellizos no, ¿verdad? ¿O viceversa?

Yes, in popular parlance.

But if you want to be precise, you talk of "gemelos idénticos" and "gemelos fraternos".

Right, got it! I'd always thought that there had to be a clearer, more precise way to distinguish the two - and now I know!

Basically it's the same as the English 'identical' twins and 'fraternal' twins'.

DOH!

Yo he leído esto:
Quote:
Los mellizos provienen de dos óvulos diferentes; tienen dos placentas y dos bolsas. Los bebés pueden ser del mismo o de diferente sexo.

En cambio, los gemelos se generan por la división espontánea de un embrión único, generado a partir de un solo óvulo. Siempre son del mismo sexo e idénticos. Pueden compartir una sola placenta, o tener dos diferentes, y compartir una sola bolsa, o tener cada uno la suya propia.
Pero a beneficio de inventario.
