Count'em up. This young man born with 34 fingers and toes set a Guinness World Record for most digits.

Akshat Saxena had seven fingers on each hand and 10 toes on each foot when he was born in India in 2010, a Guinness spokeswoman told The Huffington Post.

"I was so happy to see my baby as it was our first child," his mother Amrita Saxena told NDTV. "But later, when I saw his fingers, I was shocked and surprised."

Doctors recently amputated the excess appendages in a series of surgeries and now Saxena has the typical five digits per limb, the Guinness spokeswoman said.

This prodigious polydactyl wasn't born with thumbs, but doctors planned to create them with pieces of the extra figners, The Hindustan Times reported.
