The gene for having extra fingers is actually dominant, while the one for ten fingers is recessive. We only see everyone having ten fingers because thats the one present in our gene pool... at least in most places! There are some areas in the world where the dominant gene for extra fingers is present so most people in that population have a lot of fingers!ReplyDelete
Bottom line: dont have sex with people with too many fingers cause youll taint the population
Lots of fingers are awesome. I wish I had more!ReplyDelete
