Baby born with 12 fingers and toes

A six-pound infant born in San Francisco, California has six perfectly formed and functional fingers and toes on his hands and feet. In a medical rarity, super baby Kamani Hubbard was in 2009 with 24 working digits. He is healthy and home with his parents in Daly City, California. Kamani has a condition called "polydactyly" — a genetic trait that causes the appearance of extra fingers and toes, according to the station. His dad Kris Hubbard noticed this spectacularly rare case of polydactyly: 6-perfect fingers on each hand and six perfect toes on each foot, which went well beyond a general trait that runs in his family."Some family member have had six fingers, not completely developed. But not the toes," said the 34-year-old Hubbard, a postal worker.
