31 Fingers and Toes

An unidentified 6-year-old boy in Shenyang, China has a world record 31 digits: 15 fingers and 16 toes! He isn't able to use all the fingers, as three are fused together in the middle of each hand. He will soon undergo surgery to reduce the number of extra digits. The previous record was 25 fingers and toes, held by two children in India. Link -via Arbroath

Oh sure, polydactyly is cute in cats but not in humans?

I think it is amazing.... makes you realize the power of genetics, the potential in cell engineering... all kinds of stuff.
