Surprisingly Rare Body Features That Only Very Few People Have (130 New Pics)

Embracing yourself and coming to terms with your appearance can take years. But some people are born with genes that make them stand out even more than us regular folks. Because of this, getting through the day can be a lot harder. That’s why it’s so awesome to see those who aren’t hiding and are confident in their skin.

So we at Bored Panda decided to expand on our earlier publications (this one and this one) and compile a new list of pictures posted by folks with unusual and rare body features. Like pear-shaped pupils. Or abnormally long arms. Despite the challenges these people face, they choose to live their lives with a positive attitude. And that’s something to be celebrated.
