One girl in Bangkok has hit puberty early. Really early, having a full beard and body hair before she is even out of elementary school. And believe it or no, this girl’s predicament has caused her to become more popular. You heard it right, the more hair, the more your friends care.
Supatra Sasuphan, won the award for world’s hairiest girl awarded by Guinness book of world Records. It is this accomplishment, which Supatra attributes to dramatically boosting her popularity.
Before Suptra’s recognition many of the children used to tease her calling her monkey face and wolf girl. However proud of her accomplishments, Suptra says:
“’It does sometimes make it difficult to see when it gets long. I hope I will be cured one day.”
If Suptra had been born just a couple generations before in the middle ages she would have been branded a werewolf and outcast from society. The condition is rare, less than 75 cases have ever been recorded. I was able to find one other living “wolf child” in India
Pruthviraj Patil, too has the genetic disorder, hypertrichosis, or the werewolf disease. Whilst not as hairy as Suptra, Pruthviraj too is covered with hair.
Hopefully someday there will be a cure so that these “wolf children”, and all the other “werewolves” out their can return to their bare human skin.
