Meet The Man With The Most Number Of Fingers And Toes In The World

Meet Devendra Suthar, an Indian man who holds the record for the most number of fingers and toes in the world.... Seven on each hand and feet.

But Davendra is worried? Why? Not because he has a multitude of fingers. No, he is worried that he might lose one of the extra fingers he considers as God's 'blessing' because of his risky job as a carpenter.

The 43-year-old, from Himmatnagar in Gujarat, western India, has a total of 28 fingers and toes, the most digits of anyone in the world - a feat recognised by the Guinness Book of World Records.

He suffers from Polydactylism, meaning he has seven fingers on each hand and seven toes in each feet - albeit two toes are joined.

Now, he has to focus on not accidentally slicing one of them off at work. 

UK Mirror reports that people from far away come along with their children to see the 'man with seven fingers' and Devendra says he enjoys all the attention.

He said how people treat him as a 'celebrity' and that the staring and pointing makes him feel 'special'.

The tradesman also said how he enjoys entertaining children by performing odd tricks with the extra digits.

Devendra said: "Because of my extra fingers people here treat me as a celebrity.

"They come to see me and the attention makes me feel special.
