Meet The Da Silvas – The Six-Fingered Family!

    The Da Silva family, from Brazil, are a big family with one thing in common… They’ve all got six fingers on each hand! Well, almost all of them. Fourteen members of the Da Silva clan have what medical experts call ‘Polydactyly’. The only slight difference between the extra digited Da Silva family members is whether they’re ‘Postaxial’ (extra finger) or ‘Preaxial’ (extra thumb).

    You’ll see from the video below that the family aren’t annoyed about their condition. Actually, they seem pretty pleased with it all! In fact, those that don’t have the extra fingers feel left out. Weird, huh?
