When living things such as animals reproduce, they normally reproduce in sexual reproduction. That means two parents produce offsrping that carries traits from each parent. Some living things have asexual reproduction. That means one parent produces offsrping that is identical to themselves. We might not think we look like our parents now, but just wait! You'll see!
