Chinese girl Liu Jiangli, 6, born with a coating of thick black fur
The mother of little Liu, from Guiyang city in southwest China’s Guizhou province, walked out on her when she was just two.
The nursery made newspaper announcements asking for the toddler’s relatives to claim her, and six months later the grandfather of one of her cousins came forward.
Liu Mingying has looked after Liu ever since, but worries she will always be taunted about her appearance.
There is currently no official explanation for Liu’s condition, although it is very similar to a syndrome known as Hypertrichosis Universalis, which leaves sufferers covered entirely in body hair and affects just one in a billion people.
