Have you ever seen identical triplets/quadruplets?

Have you ever seen IDENTICAL triplets or quadruplets?

I saw four 3-year olds at a botanical garden once who were identical as far as I could tell. I read once that only about 20 sets of identical quadruplets are alive right now so I wonder if they actually were though. Another time I saw (I think) 3 identical girls working at a bookstore. I'm not absolutely sure though, one of them may have looked slightly different. On the other hand, maybe only the hair/clothes of one of them was different like in the picture below.



Also, how many pairs of identical twins have you seen? I've seen at least 11 plus there's probably some I don't remember.

I've never seen any groups larger than twins. I've seen...oh, two or three sets of twins.

I know a set of triplets, it's slightly bizarre talking to them.

Why was it bizarre to talk to triplets?

I've seen a couple sets of triplets in passing. Twins are all over the place. I have twin cousins. Have 4 friends with twins and see people with twins out and about all the time.

Two of the sets of twins I know are right on my cul-de-sac...living right next door to each other. First it was 2 houses away, then a year later next door...it was heading my way but I managed to dodge that bullet . One set moved a couple months ago. But the set next door is still there. They are two and a half year old girls.

They're biologically identical, but there are facial differences and they're pretty easy to tell apart when you can see their face. From the back it's impossible, so they are typically dressed in outfits that are alike, but different...eg same outfit different color. I've never been this closely involved with seeing twins grow up until these two. They're a riot, there is definitely synergy in numbers. The conversations between them are hysterical and they plot like pros. Should be really interesting as they grow older....
