Fingerprints on rocks

In the episode with the "wolf people", there are 2 mistakes: 1st and foremost, the wolfman syndrome gene affects males only, and is more common in the hispanic population...if you'll remember, his sister had the condition worse than him...and 2nd...you can't get a fingerprint off of a rock, it's porous, can't get a print off a porous surface. Had a crime scene investigator tell that first hand :)!! 12  out of 19 found this valuable. Do you?

You are incorrect, Congenital generalized hypertrichosis does effect both genders, female sufferers tend to have a more patchy apperance and it is a X cromosone genetic disorder 1  out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

It does effect both genders but the way it was shown in the episode is genetically impossible. For Hayden to be affected the mother would have to have the condition but for Allison to be affected either the father or mother would have to be affected. Obviously neither parent had the condition so it is not possible for Hayden and Allison to have it. Do you find this valuable?
