Maybe the answer is in our evolutionary history......  one of our ancient ancestors may have evolved a reason for having a longer nail on that finger, for grip?  Bats fingers grew pretty long....... maybe ewe have a bat finger!

Thanks CZARCAR...sounds plausible !...This is a fact but like most facts when I heard it (on the radio) they did not back it up with an explanation !...frustrating !..I find this happens a lot...grrr !!

I have been known to hang 'Bat Style' from a tree branch !...but your suggestion is equally valid !...Thank ewe very much  Airthumbs. It would be interesting to know if it is related to the length of the finger and whether the same applies to the middle toe.
