Im pretty sure when a fetus touces the womb they get their individual prints
if im correct it is formed by the liquid while the fetus is in the womb
The DNA's are not EXACTLY the same so there are still some differences. Only clones are the same.

if i am not wrong, this case occurs rarelly. Clones also have same exactly finger prints and identical twins in other words also can be said clones. so the answer is that, not always there are same finger prints in identical twins. it might happen there difference there. because nothing is 100% in this world. so things can be changed from regular sequnance. Thanks
they have same dna
Hi @Roger_Stone. @maxwellhas is right. It was previously thought that identical twins share identical DNA but it is not the case as depicted by some 'recent' findings.

I agree with mawellhas and Kayne - my understanding is that identical twins have identical finger prints.
