The great toe is medial to the little toe. It is closer to midline.

The Great Toe (Big Toe) has Two. The Proximal and Distal Phalanges. The other toes have three. The proximal, Middle, and Distal.

A phalanx is a toe bone. Thus a fractured proximal phalanx is a broken toe.

Proximal means closer to the origin of the limb or finger. Medial means the inside aspect, closer to the midline. So the proximal medial aspect of the proximal phalanx is the "inside" edge of the first bone of the toe, closer to the beginning of the toe than to the end.

It is inferior and on the lateral side in reference to your torso.

The ankle is proximal to the toe and the toe is distal to the ankle

The toes are distal to the knees. They are farther away from the origin of the lower limb.

No the little toe is lateral to the big toe, and so the big toe is medial to the little toe.

The little toe is the smallest toe on a human foot.

The big toe bone is called the hallux. It is the innermost (most medial) toe of the foot, and is made up of the proximal and distal phalanges.

Phalanges is the term for toe bones; toes may also be called digits or lower digits.Phalanges of the foot, also can be referred to as digits.Hallux ("big toe" or "great toe"), the innermost (most proximal) toe and the closest to the toes of the other footSecond toe or "long toe" (although commonly shorter than the big toe and often the third or fourth toes)Third toe, occasionally described as the "ring toe"Fourth toe, sometimes described as the "ring toe"Fifth toe ("little toe", "pinky toe", or "baby toe"), the outermost (most distal) toeThe Digital (Toe). The fingers are also reffered to as Digitals, so you should specify that you mean toes when you write it.

The toes proper have 3 bones called phalanges, except that a big toe has only 2 bones.From the tip in, the bones are the distal, medial, and proximal phalanges in the four toes, and the distal phalanx and proximal phalanx in the big toe. Within the foot, each toe is also connected to a metatarsal (lower foot) bone.

The little toe is lateral to the big toe. The big toe is closer to the midline of the body.

The phalanges, or toe bones, are the most distal bones of the foot. The metatarsals are proximal to the phalanges and the tarsals are proximal to the metatarsals.

The little toe can't be described as medial or lateral to the torso. The little toe is inferior to the torso.

Each great toe has two phalanges.

No the little toe is not needed and it is beleived that our succesor wont even have it as it is vestigial

The fifth metacarpal articulates proximally with the little finger. The fifth proximal phalanx meets the fifth metacarpal at the knuckle of the pinkie finger.

Hallux (big toe) Second toes (long toe) Third toe (middle toe) Fourth toe (ring toe) Fifth Toe (pinky toe, baby toe, or little toe)

the big toe is just a name.

Depends of how hard and where you do it.

Great toe: the largest of the digits of the foot, situated on its inner edge.2nd toe: digit of the foot between the big toe and the third toe.3rd toe: middle digit of the foot.4th toe: digit of the foot between the third toe and the little toe.Little toe: the smallest of the digits of the foot, situated on its outer edge.Distal phalanx: bone at the end of a toe.Middle phalanx: small central bone of a toe.Proximal phalanx: the small bone of a toe closest to the foot.Phalanges of the toes: jointed segments of a toe.Metatarsal bones: parts of the skeleton of a foot between the tarsus and the toes.Tarsal bones: the bone at the back of the footTarsometatarsal joint (TM): flexible joint connecting the tarsal and the metatarsal bones.Metatarsophalangeal joint (MT): flexible joint connecting the metatarsal bone and the phalange.Interphalangeal joint: joint between the first and second phalanges.Interphalangeal joint (IP): joint between the second and third phalanges

I'll say yes but to be more specific, superior is better. To be proximal is to be close and superior is to be higher up (for this case, higher up in position since humans are described from head to toe)

Yes, they do ... from Medial to Lateral: * Big toe * Index toe * Middle toe * 4th Toe * Little Toe - aka "pinky toe"

The foot is made up of the phalanges, metatarsals and the tarsals. Each toe is made up of three phalanges, except for the great toe which is only made up of two. There are five metatarsals in each foot that align with the proximal phalange of each toe. There are seven tarsals; the talus, calcaneus, cuboid, navicular, lateral cuneiform, medial cuneiform, and intermediate cuneiform.
