I'm hairy and my father is not?!

Question: I'm hairy and my father is not!?
I remember learning something about this in biology with
recessive traits or something I don't remember!. My dad does
not have a lot of leg hair (from what I can tell) but myself on the
other hand, has quite a moderately amount of hair!. Why is this!?Www@Answer-Health@Com

Typically the hair genes, both body and head, is passed from the mothers side!. If the father is carrying a dominant gene then will then trump if the mothers is more recessive!. Usually you can look through yor mothers father or brothers to see how your body/head hair will progress!.

Or your mother was diddling with the mailman!. jk!. Www@Answer-Health@Com
