A photo of a baby's long fingernails has surfaced online — much to the horror of many people.
An Instagram page, @daily_earthpix, shared the photo recently with the caption: "Cute or not?"
It is not known where or when the photo was taken and who it belongs to. It has however gone viral, earning more than 34,000 likes and 6,000 comments.
Many commenters feared that the baby could gouge out his or her own eyes with the nails. They insisted that the nails were therefore dangerous for the baby.
One wrote: "The baby probably cut his/her own face." Another one said: "Not cute; that’s a baby that sticks their hands in their mouth, nose, and eyes. That baby could get seriously hurt."
Some however said that it is not uncommon for babies to be born with long fingernails.
Nevertheless, there was consensus that baby fingernails should be cut and kept as short as possible at all times.
