Super-rare twins, zebra stripes, and the mysterious Planet 9

Description

In Australia a woman gave birth to an incredibly rare set of semi-identical twins. Her egg did something a woman's egg is never supposed to do.

Also, have we finally figured out why zebras have stripes? Would you believe it's to mess with bugs?

And it's possible that a giant, mysterious planet, ten times the size of Earth, is lurking far outside the orbit of Pluto. But we may not see it for thousands of years.
