The Manx taillessness gene is dominant; kittens from two Manx parents are generally born without any tail. However, having two copies of the gene is lethal in utero, so breeders avoid breeding two entirely tailless Manx cats together. Typically, when bred with non-Manx cat, tail length is random throughout a litter of kittens.Created by: globalquiz.orgcats riddles »average 61% ManxManx5547AbyssinianAbyssinian1382BirmanBirman1609SiameseSiamese514 Which animals are the closest relatives to humans?Chimpanzees and humans share a common ancestor about four to six million years ago.
