List of Children Raised by Wild Animals


These are children who have supposedly been raised by animals: there are monkey boys, wolf girls, gazelle boys and even an ostrich boy. Click on the child’s name to read more about that child. The information available varies greatly from child to child. Where the name is in bold, there is a considerable amount of information here.


  1. There was a really good documentary on Discovery (I think) last year. It was pretty depressing, though, as most of the feral children were feral because they were severely neglected and/or abused. Also, most of them had basically no chance of being socialized like a normal person.

  2. You should see the people down the hall from me. If they didn’t have the ability to speak, clothe themselves, and walk upright, I’d be convinced that they were raised by monkeys.
