According to werewolf legend, "...when the moon grows full, so goes the legend, a man is transformed into a beast--he grows hair, and acquires awesome powers."

Of course, this is rubbish--Ambras syndrome, or Congenital Hypertrichosis, causes excessive hair growth. There are fewer than 40 cases documented worldwide of people with this genetic condition.

Two such hypertrichosis sufferers are brothers Danny and Larry Gomez, known for their daredevil feats in a Mexican circus. Thai schoolgirl Nat Sasuphan is another of the thirty people worldwide that live with this rare condition.
