At first glance, Dhiva Caezara may look like any other young ladies but wait until you pay close attention to her fingers and toes.

According to Zara, all of her fingers and toes including the extras are fully-functioning and working fine.

The extra fingers and toes also grow their own nail, tissues, bones, and joints.

Her parents once thought of removing her extra fingers and toes when she was an infant.

However, the doctor advised them against it as the tissues and joints of the fingers and toes connect with the tissues and joints of her other body parts.

Zara further added that she was bullied when she was child due to her anomaly.

Nevertheless, the lady never thought that her extra fingers and toes are something to be embarrassed about.

Her post later quickly became viral on social media as many users applauded her effort to encourage everyone to embrace their beauty.

Polydactyly is often not life-threatening but it can occur as a symptom of a more serious genetic condition.
