Different between the inherited traid and the aquire traid?

Dear Student

Acquired traits
 are those traits that are developed during lifetime of an individual. These traits cannot be inherited. For example, a wrestler develops large muscles due to his training program. but this doesnot mean it'll be passed on to his offspring. In simple terms, acquired traits are skills, knowledge or memory that an individual develops during his/her lifetime.

On the other hand, inherited traits are those traits that are transferred from parents to offsprings. Example, skin colour, eye colour and shape, etc
