(Greek: finger, toe)

1. One of the Artiodactyla (order of hoofed mammals) having an even number of toes.
2. An ungulate (hoofed) animal of this kind.
Relating to, or belonging to, mammals of the order Artiodactyla (even-toed).
Various hoofed mammals of the order Artiodactyla, which includes cattle, deer, camels, hippopotamuses, sheep, and goats, that have an even number of toes; usually two or sometimes four, on each foot.
Having two digits on each limb, as with the Two-toed Sloth, Choloepus didactylus.

In humans this name is used for an abnormality in which the middle digits are missing, leaving only the thumb and fifth finger.

A description of the abnormal shortness of the fingers and toes.
Abnormal shortness of the fingers and toes.
Characterized by an abnormal shortness of the fingers and toes.
A reference to an abnormal shortness of the fingers and toes.
Abnormal shortness of the fingers; or short, stubby fingers and toes.

Bradypus tridactylus
A sloth that has three long claws on each forefoot.

The three-toed sloth inhabits tropical rain forests of Colombia, Venezuela, the Guyanas, and Brazil.

This sloth can hang so securely with its hook-like claws that it even falls asleep in this position.

A reference to the permanent flexion (bent condition) of one or more fingers or toes.
Permanent flexion (bending) of one, or both interphalangeal, joints of one or more fingers, usually the little finger; often congenital (from birth) in origin.
Curving of the fifth finger (the little finger) toward the fourth finger (the ring finger).

Sometimes it is called the "fifth finger clinodactyly" to distinguish it from a similar curving of other fingers or toes.

Clinodactyly is considered a minor congenital malformation (birth defect). The basis for the clinodactyly is that the middle bone in the fifth finger is underdeveloped and, instead of being rectangular, is wedge-shaped.

ctenodactyl (s) (noun), ctenodactyls (pl)
Fingers or toes that have something on their skins which look like fish scales or tiny projections like the teeth of combs.

Cross references directly, or indirectly, involving the "toes" and "fingers": digit-; hallu-; phalang-.
