A pair of twins in the United Kingdom has different skin color.

Two boys born to Kerry Richardson of the U.K. were born on the same day, at roughly the same time, but do not share a skin color. One of the boys is white, and the other is black.

The boys' father is white; but Richardson, the boys' mother, is of mixed heritage, Nigerian and British. The boys were born on July 23 but have only recently shown signs of differing complexions. Layton, the white twin, has gone more blond recently, while Kaydon has gotten darker, looking more like his mother.

Genetic scientists say that the odds of something like that happening are 1 in a million.
