For the most part, we’re all born with ten fingers and ten toes, two ears and a pair of eyes. Most of us have a nose that we smell out of, two legs that we walk on, and two hands that we use every single day. One of the first things doctors do when they deliver a baby is to count the newborn’s fingers and toes. Unless a baby is born with some kind of defect or mysterious illness, the outcome is usually the same: ten fingers and ten toes.
Every now and then, people privately wish they had extra body parts. You have to admit that an additional arm or leg would come in handy once in a while. Well, here are some people who were born with extra body parts that are quite permanent. People born with extra heads, an extra finger, and even with eight limbs!
Before you witness this mind-boggling gallery of people born with extra body parts, count your blessings on all of your fingers and toes. Be thankful you only have ten of each because even though everybody has weird human body parts, there are some who are born with extra or start growing ancillary parts.
