|MadSci Network: Anatomy|
I have read the article on this website entitled, "Can a human grow a tail?" and in doing so found out that new formations of skin and cartlidge can be created using matrices. When I read the article I found out that "you could feasibly fix a tail-shaped matrix to a human, wait for growth, and you’ve got a tail." Later in the article it states that "this tail would only be skin cells with a few blood vessels" The article made me wonder about something. Could a human grow flaps of skin that extend from the back of his/her body that, when held at the end by his or her arms to form and arch shape, could act as parachutes.
