‘Super’ Baby With Twelve Functional Fingers And Toes Born

February 1, 2009

California (ChattahBox) – A baby in San Francisco has been born with six fingers, all of them functional, and well formed, on each hand, as well as six toes on each foot.

Doctors were amazed by the oddity, as usually when extra digits appear on the body, they are not fully developed, and they certainly don’t work. But this child’s fingers and toes all look and work as well as the others.

“It’s merely an interesting and beautiful variation rather than a worrisome thing,” said Dr. Michael Treece, the OBGYN who delivered Kamani Hubbard, said.

“Imagine what sort of a pianist a 12-fingered person would be or flamenco guitarist or typist.”
