If Pets Had Thumbs Day

Many non-human animals also have some kind of opposable thumb or toe. An animal species is said to have opposable thumbs if the thumb is capable of bending in such a way that it can touch all the other digits on the hand or foot. Most species do not have opposable thumbs. Opposable thumbs are a signature feature of the primate family, and played a large role in the ancient humans' invention and use of tools.


In humans, the distal pads are wider than in other primates. The distal pad of the human thumb is divided into a proximal and a distal compartment, the former more deformable than the latter, which allows the thumb pad to mold around an object. This text has been taken from www.cute-calendar.com


Note: If you have a pet monkey, you already know what it would be like for your pet to have thumbs.
