Good For Counting On - 15 Fingers, 16 Toes


  1. 0h I dont know what to say. . .ive seen an operation seperating fingers, amazing.

    His toes. . . I gather is two sets to each foot. Does that mean there was meant to be a twin!!? Egg split, didnt survive and other twin got absorbed in the body apart from these hand and feet cells. . Interestin' to think about.

    Thank god its the present day of understanding. If donkeys years ago,(little house on the praire era). This person would have been shuned and treated like a freak. . .perhaps worse still put in a carnaval.

    Ignorance in those days was cruilty of understanding, empathy and compassion.

    2010 still goes on in third world countries unfortunately. . :((

  2. Multiple digits doesn't sound like an indication of a vestigial twin. This appears to be "polydactyly", or larger numbers of digits than normal, which has some genetic cause.

    OTOH, live long and prosper!

  3. Chazza, with all we see today on TV and the internet these days, this is mild, I suppose.

    Anon, I guess the fingers and toes didn't know when to stop growing. OTOH...I see what you did there :-)

  4. OMG! I hope he could receive a successful operation because in my opinion 15 fingers is not comfortable. This kid should be included on the record guiness.
