Hurray for that ewe with the twins! I can see where having twins might be an advantage to the mom--no really big kids! Never thought about it before. I wonder if that's why deer usually have twins or triplets, too? Better survival rates for the moms and double (or triple) the chance that one fawn might survive to adulthood?
