We can't freaking believe it: Dylan and Cole Sprouse turn 25 today. Zack and Cody, the little boys from Big Daddy, our very first Disney Channel crushes, are fully grown men. And as they grow older in the spotlight and become extra babely in their own ways, we're starting to actually wonder: are Dylan and Cole Sprouse identical, or are they pulling a Mary-Kate and Ashley thing and have secretly been fraternal this whole time?
Short version: all signs point to yes, they are fraternal. Their major physical differences chalk up to, who knows? Diet, sun exposure, hair dye? But really, even in 2017, 25 years after their existence and 24 years and four months after their career kicked off, we still want to know all the ways our boys are different.

Of course, we know the big ones: Cole is Jughead on Riverdale, Dylan just got out of retirement for Carte Blanche, Cole was Cody, Dylan was Zack in The Suite Life of Zack & Cody, Dylan is opening is his own Brooklyn business, All-Wise Meadery, Cole is making us sob by dating Lili Reinhart.
But seriously, how can you look at old pictures of the Twitter Kings (which we do routinely) and know who is who? Well, in honor of their birthday, we counted just a few significant differences.
