    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.

    Thanks.

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

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