Well, here are some people who were born with extra body parts that are quite permanent. We are talking people born with extra heads, an extra finger, and even with eight limbs!
Before you witness this mind-boggling gallery of people born with extra body parts, count your blessings on all of your fingers and toes. Be thankful you only have ten of each because even though everybody has weird human body parts, there are some who are born with extra or start growing ancillary parts!
