Two new parents from Leizhou, Guangdong got a bit of a surprise last week when they discovered that their newborn baby boy had eight toes on each foot. The baby has the usual number of fingers (ten in total), but oddly enough, no thumbs at all. Doctors say the birth anomaly could have been caused by either genetics or environmental pollution, though that doesn’t seem like much of a prognosis to us at all.
