In this photo taken Wednesday Aug. 24, 2011, Yoandri Hernandez Garrido, 37, known as "Twenty-Four," drinks juice from a coconut in Baracoa, Guantanamo province, Cuba.  Hernandez is proud of his extra digits and calls them a blessing, saying they set him apart and enable him to make a living by scrambling up palm trees to cut coconuts and posing for photographs in this eastern Cuban city popular with tourists.  Known as polydactyly, Hernandez's condition is relatively common, but it's rare for the extra digits to be so perfect. (AP Photo/Javier Galeano)
