A picture of 11 sets of twins.
How many sets of twins do you know? Well, if you are a resident of Qingyan village outside of Chongqing, then that number is at least 39.
The village has a total of 367 households and an insane 39 sets of twins among them. The oldest set of twins are already 89 years old.
Because of this weird statistic. The village has become popularly known as “twin village,” with at least one set of twins in every class in school and with even the chickens rumored to being laying eggs with double yolks, NetEase reports.
Why is this? Well nobody’s quite sure. Locals say they are baffled.
Still, this isn’t all that unusual in China. After all, one primary school in Henan has an incredible 32 sets of twins, and one Ningxia woman has given birth to three sets of twins in just six years.
Perhaps, a plastic surgery clinic should set up in town, so that locals will finally be able to tell who is who.
