Ear Nails

World records for longest fingernails and toenails are fought out between various contenders, mostly from India. However, though very rare, people occasionally grow similar 'nails' in their earlobes, caused by a surfeit of keratin in the system. 'Earnails' are usually only a couple of centimetres square. However, the record for one probably belongs to Phya Thanom of Bangkok who, in 1980, had a nail growth from his earlobe which measured nine and a half inches!
