    I’m a new keeper, but I’ve read that Homes Hingebacks have five toes on their front feet. I noticed my girl has six (I think!) it’s hard to get a good pic because she won’t hold still.
    This is just idle curiosity, I thought it was interesting.
    Anyone else have pics of their Homes’ front feet?

    Can we see more photos please. What about the front limb, does that have 6 toenails too?

    I’ll work on getting a better shot than this. It’s hard to get a good shot of her since she’s so wiggly when her legs are out like that. Her front legs are the ones with 6 toes. Her back legs just have 4.

    Here’s a little better shot of her front foot from the back. Hope this helps!

    Well that’s pretty cool. It’s highly likely for this thing to happen. I’ve seen a 2 footed on one hind leg Burmese Star.
