I was just taking pics of my sweet little joey Sonja and realized that something just wasn't right with her little hands. Upon further inspection, it looks like she has 2 fused thumbs on each hand with 2 nails. Well, just look for yourself: http://s27.photobucket.com/albums/c163/LuckyYouGliders/Allaira%20and%20Bear/Joeys/1%20Sonja%2072207/Sonjas%20thumbs/

She is not inbred in any way. Her father is from Ziggy & Cleo, and her mother is out of Sandman & Sprite, and they are on the HPW diet. I just don't know what to think of this. She uses her hands normally and does not have any trouble gripping. This is just weird!

Actually she is available.

And if one person tells me to take her to the vet! I am going to shoot you, LOL. Of course unless there is a real need. But she has full use of her thumbs, there is no discoloring, it looks perfectly healthy.

She is adorable and very unique! smile

Some might call it a freak of nature, some special. Things like that just happen sometimes with no rhyme or reason to it. As long as she is healthy, I wouldn't worry about it personally. smile

Just curious, did you check her mom and dad's hands and feet? What about other siblings?

LOL

I had been holding her for about 1/2 hour before I had even realized it. I even took pics just a couple days ago and didn't notice it. But today I was just sitting there admiring how cute she is and how sweet she is, and OMG, what is that?! LOL. I couldn't beleive it. I had to go and check all my other joeys and check her to again and again to get myself to beleive that she actually did have this abnormality. Her new mommy will have extra fun clipping those little toes, LOL. So weird.

That is so cool. Aren't their back feet like that? I mean, the back feet having two thumb nails had to start somewhere, so maybe in the wild every now and then a suggie has the double thumb on the front feet too. That is how we evolve, threw natures freaks.

Nope smile There are 2 nails that are their groomers on the back foot, not thumbs or thumbnails though.

If you aren't keeping her, I would make sure she is not sold as a breeder. Cute glider, but it is a deformity - who knows what inside might be messed up. dunno She is adorable, but she shouldn't be bred. (And if she is healthy - I don't see a reason to go to a vet.)

I agree with Mel, I know you are selling her, it would probably be best to sell her to a non-breeding home...

So...does she have an extra finger fused to the other or is it just one of her existing fingers fused?? She is adorable! Wish I had the extra $$ and she could come live with me in my retirement colony smile Adorable Lynsie!

It looks like she has 2 thumbs fused together, so like, an extra thumb fused to her existing thumb. Kinda of looks like her grooming toes.

she is cute...as far as the fingers goes, it is just an aberrant development of the "buds" that grow into fingers.....we deal with these in people ALL the time and trust me, they have no other genetic issues. There are a few who have significant developmental delays but they are associated with severe syndromes (heart, brain, genito-urinary) and in the glider world would never have made it OOP. In my humble opinion, she shouldn't be labeled in any way (except adorable) and honestly see no reason she couldn't breed....however, I would defer to Suz on this

I am going to leave it up to her new mommy as to whether they want to breed her or not. She is still doing great. I clipped all her little thumbies today, lol. She is the most adorable and sweetest joey ever! I don't care if she had 10 thumbs and 2 heads! LOL
