Season 2 Episode 16
Feral Children. Children living in the wild--and surviving with the wild--have fascinated and haunted us for centuries. Like Romulus and Remus, mythical twins raised by a she-wolf, and the legendary Tarzan of the apes, these wild children learn the ways of the jungle, the language of their adopted family, and survive for years away from all human contact. But are these stories fact or fiction? Could a child actually survive alone in the forest? And left in the wilderness, does a child forget his human origins and become a wild beast? Is It Real? follows experts in the fields of psychology and animal behavior to examine the world's most compelling cases -- from a boy in Uganda who lived with monkeys to an Australian woman said to run with kangaroos!
