Ripley's unveils world's longest fingernails

Shridhar Chillal (born 1938) holds the world record for the longest fingernails ever reached on a single hand, with a combined length of 909.6 centimeters (358.1 inches). Chillal's longest single nail is his thumbnail, measuring 197.8 centimeters (77.87 inches). He stopped cutting his nails in 1952.

Although proud of his record breaking nails, Chillal has faced increasing difficulties due to their weight, including disfigurement of his fingers and loss of function in his left hand. Nerve damage caused from the nails' immense weight has also caused deafness in Chillal's left ear.

Chillal wishes his fingernails will eventually be preserved in a museum. Chillal makes appearances with his finger nails in tow, such as his cameo (with nails attached) in the movie Jackass 2.5.
