What is a POLYDACTYL
It is the same as the Maine Coon you know and love now. Except they have extra toes.
The poly Maine Coon is more adept, and often smarter, because of the
increased ability that the shape of their paws gives them. Their larger
paws enabled them to survive in conditions requiring them to catch their
own food. Some of them survived and to this day the dominant
gene, polydactylism, continues to be present in a certain percentage of
native Maine Coons. Being still visible, it is likely present in the
same percentages now as in the earlier times. It can be estimated rather
accurately from genetics rules that a constant minimum of 25% of early
native Maine Coons would have been polydactyl, and perhaps more in some
isolated locations and the many coastal islands.
