...mean that the other twin will be able to waggle their ears too?
  As a non-ear-waggler and non-twin myself, I don't know. If I knew any identical wins it'd be easy enough simply to ask them. But seeing as I don't, I'll just have to ask you lot....

So here goes...If a set of identical twins are identical in every physical sense, are 'skills' such a waggling your ears (or being able to turn your tongue upside down, or roll your eyes back in your head etc etc) duplicated in the other identical twin?  Or not?  Or somewhere in between?
