Fast Fact: Wrinkly Fingers

So why do our fingers and toes wrinkle after being submerged in water for a while? 

Scientists now believe that this is simply to improve our grip when wet. Lab test confirm that grip is greatly improved when this occurs. 

So when I’m talking a shower and I reach for that oversized shampoo bottle (because I steal my wife’s sometimes) it’s no problem.  Thanks body!
