View Full Version : Does anyone know about the little girl that can climb like a monkey?

12-26-2007, 10:52 PM
A couple of years ago I saw something on TV about this little girl who could climb anything like a monkey (might have been on Ripley's Believe it or Not). They said she was raised with a chimpanzee or something because her parents were researching them and she just developed this uncanny ability to climb... I thought this was cool because its almost a superpower, and it brought up a lot of interesting nature/nurture discussions. Does anyone know what i'm talking about or the girl's name? I cant find the story/video online anywhere.

Is this the girl that had tests done her hands and they discovered she had incredibly/freakishly strong fingers?

12-26-2007, 10:55 PM
yes, i remember that was part of it. Her fingers grew to be longer and than normal and she had incredible grip strength that let her climb things really easily.... i cant find any sory online about it though.

i remember that, pretty interesting. the width from the longest point from one of her arms to the other is taller than her.

Maybe she grew up to be her......

I hope this girl is not black. It'd really add to a kkk stereotype.
