These 30 Remarkable Body Features Are Very Rare…and Fascinating

Finally, let’s talk about a condition known as distichiasis.


Sounds dangerous, doesn’t it?

Well, it’s not.

In fact, it’s purely aesthetic.

Anyone who has this gene gets treated to the second row of eyelashes, much as Elizabeth Taylor had.

According to Elizabeth, a biography by J. Randy Taraborrelli, Taylor’s mother wasn’t too worried after receiving her daughter’s diagnosis. “Well, now that doesn’t sound so terrible at all,” she said.

Luckily, the condition doesn’t appear to come with any great risks.


There can be some irritation if the lashes are too close to the eyes, but that can usually be taken care of with regular grooming.
