As some of you know, I'm studying for my GED right now. I've been doing the writing portion, but being bored with it, I'm taking a break and scanning the rest of the book. Genetics popped out at me, and now I have a question.
Do you think I have green eyes or hazel eyes?
Here's why I ask:
I always thought my eyes were green (they were bright blue until about 1yr old, and mom still thinks they are ) BUT, I'm not sure now looking into the science of it.
If one parent (mom) has hazel eyes and the other (dad) blue, then it's 50/50 blue or hazel for the child (both are recessive). (my sister and brother both have blue eyes) AND, green eyes are only seen in 2% of the world's population. (or so I read online on different websites)
I still think my eyes look green rather than hazel, they look like an olive green when I look into any mirror.
So, are they green? Or are they hazel? And if green, than how when neither parent has them? I'm honestly curious and intrigued by this; Genetics always caught my interest in school.
Here's a couple pictures to help, both are a few years old, but the best I have of my eyes (One I'm inside, the other outside in sunlight, so a slight difference from that)
