He has a condition known as polydactylism.

A boy, nicknamed Hong Hong, has been born in Hunan, China, with 31 fingers and toes, a condition known as polydactylism.

The boy has 15 fingers and 16 toes, with two palms on each hand and no thumbs.

The abnormalities did not show up in prenatal scans of the three-month-old, although the child’s mother had an extra digit on her hands and feet.

According to Fairfax, the family are trying to raise money to pay for surgery to correct the abnormalities.
