Identical twins who are not identical

Despite being identical twins, these two have a condition where all the nutrients went from one baby to the other. Because it endangered their lives they had to be born early.

Here is one pair of twin brothers that few will have any difficulty telling apart.

For although Byron and Lincoln Ryman were born within a minute of each other, firstborn Byron - at 3lb 6oz a small baby himself - was precisely three times bigger than his sibling.

Eleven weeks premature, both boys were given a slim chance of survival - particularly Lincoln, weighing only 1lb 2oz at birth.

But yesterday the pair, now just over five weeks old, were doing well, thanks to the dedicated staff at the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney.
