The human body is perhaps the most complex machine of all time. There are surprises upon surprises waiting for us common people as we go through our life. Some people are finding out new uses for organs, others are twisting their body parts in such a creepy way that we can’t help but shudder. Even though we shudder, we are still fascinated as to how diverse the human body can be.

1: A scalp after a transplant

These days science has transcended beyond the barriers of space and time and has resulted in the making off even the impossible possible. A century ago, if you told a bald guy that he’d be able to grow hair artificially, he would’ve laughed you off. But these days seed injections and overall transplants are happening successfully. This is what the scalp looks like right after a hair transplant.

2: Legolas

Elves were all of our favorite characters while growing up. Every series had at least on cool elf that we wanted to be. Elf ears in children are quite common, and they are easily corrected in the case of babies. Sometimes, the body corrects itself as the child grows. This kid, however, still has these years at four. I hope she isn’t an actual elf. Or I’d be SO jealous.

3: Balloon hands?

Puffiness of hands can be caused by a large number of things. They can be caused naturally, can be a result of excessive smoking, substance abuse or the poorly administered injection. In this case, the latter is in play. The swelling happens due to the excess of an opioid drug inside of the bloodstream. This has occurred because the person put an injection in the wrong way.

4: There’s a small opening near his temple

This is an actual medical condition. During the formation of a baby, it goes from fertilization to zygote to embryo. Sometimes, during embryonic development, a few cells of the body are not formed. This results in a sinus much like this one in different places of the body. It is benign, but there are rare and little cases of infection. Just stay careful.

5: Heterochromia

This is a medical condition in which two alleles of a gene pair exist in mutual dominance which results in both the alleles showing their phenotype resulting in the phenotype being mixed. Heterochromia is such a condition in which the colors of both the eyes are different from each other. This condition can also cause discoloration in the skin, but t is generally not that bad.

6: Michelle Lee’s hands

Michelle was an employee at a massage parlor and was stranded in the middle of the ocean in a rowboat. There is nothing scarier than being stuck in a wide ocean teeming with different life forms. However, Michelle Lee did not give up, and she rowed for 3000 miles. The skin of her hands became stiff and hurtful, but she never gave up and thus, neither did her body.

7: The amniotic band syndrome

This is a medical condition. The amniotic sac s a sac around the baby during pregnancy. It is filled with amniotic fluid that prevents the baby from getting hurt during tugs and jolts. Sometimes, the amniotic sac undergoes complications and wraps itself around a part of the embryo during the development. This retards the development of that particular organ. As can be seen in the picture with the hand development.

8: Weird moles

Moles are weird things. The appeal of moles depends on which place it is found. Moles on the chin and the face are beautiful whereas moles on the freaking belly button aren’t appealing at all. It almost looks like this person has n eye inside their stomach and that it is staring at us. Very unnerving if you ask me.

9: Coloboma

Coloboma is an eye disease or condition in which parts of the eyeball are missing. In this case, the part of the iris is missing, and that results in the eye looking like this. The pupil looks like it is running off like ink, giving the entire eye a weird look. Coloboma does affect vision, but the extent of the effect depends upon which part of the eye has missing cells.

10: Mismatched eyelashes

Heterochromia has already been discussed, but in this case, it is not the eyes that are mismatched. The color of the eyelashes, in this case, is different in both the eyes. This frequently happens with heterochromia patients but is extremely rare in non-heterochromia patients, and this looks almost enthralling.  I hope that the people with these unique traits get appreciated for them.
