20 Photos Proving That Your Genes Are Amazing

3 years ago

When a baby is born, both the parents and even the friends and relatives start speculating about who the baby resembles more. It’s not easy to guess who the kid will eventually look like when they grow up. Most children share 50% of their DNA with each parent. Multiple gene pairs play a key role in determining various bodily features in humans, like hair color, eye color, stature, and skin color.

We at Bright Side put together pictures of kids who did a great job of inheriting their parents’ features.
