Twenty-Four

Extra digits help to reach coconut heights

Twenty-Four thanks to Peter Jensen

Yoandri Hernandez Garrido, 37, is known in Baracoa, Cuba as 'Twenty-Four' - his nickname coming from the six perfectly formed fingers on each of his hands and six toes on each foot. Hernandez has no fixed job, and his 'extra digits' are a blessing to Hernandez since they set him apart, and enable him to make a living by scrambling up palm trees (to cut coconuts) and pose for tourist photographs. The money he makes from tourist pictures ($10 per) is a bonanza to Twenty-Four in a country with an average salary of $20 a month. Twenty-Four’s condition (polydactyly) is relatively common, but it's rare for the extra digits to be so perfectly formed.
