I was inspecting my guinea pigs the other day when i found that one of my guinea pigs has a floppy claw, I only got them 5 days ago and i think her paw has always been like that. Anyway she has 3 normal claws and one floppy claw on both of her back legs i dont know is she was born like that, she walks and runs fine with no problems. Unless she just lets them flop when i pick her up.
Any ideas https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum/images/icons/pi_question_mark.gif

Animals with extra toes are called polydactyl. It's fairly common and really not anything to worry about.
