In the above paragraph you've effectively debunked the examples you've
cited as producing different physical phenotypes from the same genotype.
Putting genetically identical organisms (rats, humans, whatever) in a
different environment (with different diet, air quality, bacterial profile
in the drinking water, whatever) means that there is, in fact, a different
set of building blocks.
