Dogs Can Sniff Out the Differences Between Identical Twins

Post by ROSA on 15.07.11 12:10

Who is who in this picture? Maybe you can’t tell the difference but your canine friend, Rover, might be able to help you out. According to recent study conducted by scientists in the Czech Republic, some dogs are able to distinguish between identical twins even when a DNA test cannot. Dogs in the experiment sniffed samples from sets of both identical and fraternal twins between the ages of 5 and 13 years old. Samples from unrelated children were included as well. In every trial, researchers found that the dogs could both match the twins’ scents and distinguish them from one another — indicating that even people with identical genes have their own unique scent.

Rover might need a little practice before performing this trick, however. All the dogs used in the experiment were German Shepherds and highly trained.

The scientists have published the results of their study online in the journal PLos ONE.

Try Wiki - Detection dog

Detection dogs have been trained to search for many substances, including:

Plants, animals, produce, and other agricultural items (used by customs services to detect possible invasive species such as Quagga mussel)
Cancer
Polycarbonate optical discs such as DVDs (used to search for bootleg recordings)
Crime evidence
Currency
Drugs
Diabetes
Bed bugs
Explosives
Mobile phones (as contraband in prisons)
Firearms
Human remains
Mold
Termites

They are remarkable creatures.

And as someone said a long time ago, would you get on a plane which an 'explosives dog' had marked ?
The McCanns obviously would !

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
