Real Life Wolfman

Danny Ramos Gomez looks like any other circus performer. Look a little closer and you'll quickly realize why Danny is known as "the wolf man".

Danny has a condition called hypertrichosis, in which the body produces an abnormal amount of hair.

Danny Ramos Gomez, Werewolf Guy: "Sometimes people who touch me say that the hair on my face is finer than the hair on my head. That's what they say."

Twenty-two-year-old Danny and his 25-year-old brother Larry are known for their daredevil feats in a Mexican circus. But when they were little, it was different. They were part of a freak show, and they were known as "los ninos lobos", the "wolf children", and exhibited like animals.
