Hairiest Girl In The World: 11-Year-Old Wolf Girl

Hairiest girl in the world, wolf girl, Supatra Sasuphan Supatra Sasuphan has been given the dubious accolade of being named the World's Hairiest Girl.

The 11-year-old schoolgirl, who is from Thailand, is affected by Ambras Syndrome, an extremely rare condition which causes thick hair to grow all over the body. There have only been 50 documented cases of the chromosomal disorder since the middle ages.

Supatra - who goes by the nickname Nat - says her unusual body hair has made her one of the most popular girls at school, and her Hairiest Girl award has brought her local fame.

She told reporters: 'All I did was answer a few questions and then they gave it to me. A lot of people have to do a lot to get in.'

The little girl admitted she used to be teased about her looks, and called names like Wolf Girl and Monkey Face, but says she is now 'used' to her body hair.

'I'm very used to this condition,' she said. 'I can't feel the hair as it has always been like this. I don't feel anything.

'It does sometimes make it difficult to see when it gets long. I hope I will be cured one day.'
