Typically both are infertile.

According to the article the male isn't affected very much, though he may be slightly less fertile due to a decrease in testicle size.

Interesting. I took a lot of animal science in uni and they always taught us both were infertile.

Unless you received your degree from a religion based university, it's safe to say you can still trust your education over a Wikipedia page....

Except with tigons and ligers! My favorite example of assumed sterility. Apparently the whole world just forgot they weren't actually sterile for 20 years.

I can never find the article where a zoo had a tigon enclosed with an opposite sex tiger and was so surprised when they had babies.

I do. Land grants pride themselves on science based research.

Why would the male be affected? There's no source that could cause demasculinization in this scenario. Only the male twin is producing disruptive hormones here.

Grad school is a while ago so I don't remember the specific papers backing it up but that's what we were taught.
