Brazilian Colloquialisms, Sayings, and Slang #41

Filho de peixe peixinho é - The child of a fish is [bound to be] a fish [too]

Similar to “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” but doesn’t usually hold the somewhat negative connotation of its English equivalent.

Literally, “the offspring/child of a fish is a little fish.”
