Fascinating Formation of Fingerprints

Did you know that fingerprints are formed while a baby is still in its mother’s womb?

The ridges that make up fingerprints are fully formed well before a baby is even born. By the time a fetus reaches just six months old they already have fully developed fingerprints! Fingerprints are made up of ridges which are formed by pressure on the fetus’ fingertips from touching their surroundings.
