In some languages, there are no separate words for "fingers" and "toes". In Greek, are there (2) different words?

I think if you want to make the distinction, you need to say δάχτυλα του χεριού / δάχτυλα του ποδιού respectively.

I put "the hand has five Digits" which is correct and fits the greek word better but was Marked incorrect.
