Boy with 31 Fingers and Toes

A Chinese hospital has released images of a 6-year-old boy who was born with 15 fingers and 16 toes. Since more isn’t always better, he’ll soon undergo surgery to have the extras removed.

With a total of 31 fingers and toes, the boy, who’s identity hasn’t been revealed, has beaten the previous record of 25. According to scientists, the excess of fingers and toes is a result of gene mutation.

15 Fingers? I only counted 14 from the X-ray results...

I think the 15th is the 'bump' on the edge of the right thumb, that u can see even in x-ray picture...
