Feet which work like hands are most commonly observed in monkeys, however some humans possess the genetic throwback to use their toes like they were smaller fingers.

For amputees, the use of their feet becomes a requirement. The use of their feet, and sometimes even their tongue and mouth, is explored in a greater function and is developed out of necessity and practice. Meaning that a person can paint with their feet and even type at impressive speeds.

For those that it may not be such a necessity for, the simple manipulation of objects is an achievement. Small objects can be grasped between the toes and the ankle can work like a wrist, so instead of bending over to pick up dropped phones from the floor anyone could use their toes to grasp it then pass it back up to their hands.

Unlike apes, humans only use their legs to walk rather than using hands and arms as stabilisers. This means that the muscles in the feet are constantly tensed restricting the dexterity, as well as the shortness of toes, this unfortunately restricts us from using them to lift heavy or large objects.

However, with practice anybody can use their feet to change the channel on the telly, open doors, and pinch people!
