Feral child

A feral child (feral, ie. "wild" or undomesticated) is a human child who, from a very young age, has lived in isolation from human contact and has remained unaware of human social behavior, and unexposed to language.

A feral child is an extremely rare phenomenon, and there are only just over a hundred known cases.
