Myanmar girl born w/ 12 fingers, 14 toes

February 16, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
A woman in Myanmar is trying to get her daughter in the Guinness Book of World Records for having the most fingers and toes.

The 16-month-old has 12 fingers and 14 toes.

While it is uncommon for a person to be born with extra fingers or toes, it is extremely rare for someone to have both. Doctors say, generally, a person can function normally with extra digits, though many people have them removed anyway.

The girl's mother has contacted Guinness. The current record is held by two people in India, who each have 12 fingers and 13 toes.
