Strange people in this world

There are some strange persons on earth.  These are real people with rare appearance.  Here is a list of the strange persons which I searched and collected over internet and reproducing here.
  •  OctomanThis is about a person named Rudy Santos who lives in Bacolad city, in Philippines.  He is  treated as Octoman.  He has three legs and four arms.  One of his legs is missing below the knee.  His twin also has a head consisting of an ear and a small patch of hairy scalp attached at his sternum.Rudy Santos is 55 years old man with this rare medical phenomenon known as a parasitic twin.  Medical experts are examining Rudy Santos to find out how his twin is formed within him and what are the organs of his twin existing - whether there is a spine, and other organs etc.?  They are also trying to see if surgery is possible for Rudy at this late age.  Let us hope the surgery would be possible and he would be a normal man soon.
     
  • Lizardman : This is about Mr. Erik Spraque who was born on 12th June, 1972 in Texas. He is known as Lizardman because of his appearance.  He has sharpened teeth, full body tattoo of green scales, bifurcated tongue and also green inked lips.  He has transformed himself with body modifications. There are rumors that he is now trying to have a tail transplant.  The Lizardman makes his living as a freak by performing before audience all over the world.  He has performed many slide show acts like fire eating, breathing, sword swallowing etc.  The Lizardman is a Ph.D candidate at the University of Albany before begining his body transformations. He holds a bachelor degree in Philosophy.  He lives in Austin, Texas along with his wife Meghan and their pets.  The Lizardman also has a blog.  You can visit the Lizardman's blog
  • Wold Kids:  Suprata Nat Sasuphan is a 11 year old girl from Thailand..  She behaves like all other girls and enjoys eating ice cream, swimming, and going to school.  But she is one in a billion in other ways. She is born with thick 5 cm. long animal like fur covering her head and parts of her body.  Nat was born with congenital hypertrichosis which is also known as "werewolf syndrome".  Suprata Nat has thick hair growing over her face, ears, arms, legs and back.  All the laser treatments failed to stop her hair growth.  Her family is desperately trying for a treatment to her to give her a normal life.  But it seems there is no easy options.         Another 11 year old Prithviraj Patil in India also suffering from uncontrollable hair growth is undergrowing painful laser treatment but his hair keeps growing back again on his face and body.   Prithviraj is from the Sangli district near Mumbai is a healthy, sporty and popular student at school.  Even though lot of hair grows on his head and body there is no itch or rash and no bad smell on his body.  The reasons for this condition is not know till now.  Now both the children are having their hopes on Professor Angela Christiano, and her research in genetic science for help in finding a cure for their children.
