Q:
What makes your hands prune up when soaked in water?
A:

It has to do with the the way your fingers are made. The tips of fingers and toes are covered by a tough, thick layer of skin. When they are soaked for a prolonged period it absorbs water and expands. However, there is no room for this expansion on fingers and toes, so the skin buckles and you get wrinkles.
