Computer-generated image reconstructed from scanned human data. Actual size of foetus is over 14 inches, 5-6 lbs. This image presents a frontal view of the right hand of the 8-month-old foetus during fetal, foetal development. The age is calculated from the day of fertilization. The fingers of the right hand are clearly distinguishable, as are the fingernails. Fingernails typically begin development around the twenty-fourth week of fetal, foetal development and reach the tips of the fingers by the thirty-second week, enabling the foetus to scratch itself.
