Sometimes, our DNA behaves unexplainably — it’s no wonder scientists don’t know what some parts of our genes do. This unexpected behavior never stops surprising us. The heroes of our article have experienced these DNA surprises and proved that nature knows no such thing as “ordinary.”

We at Bright Side are amazed by every single hero of this article, and we want to share them with our readers.

1. “So I have no nose cartilage.”

2. “I was born with a scar on my eye.”

5. “My fingers all look like this.”

6. “My daughter has got an adult tooth poking out behind her baby teeth.”
