Incredible Liu Jiangli, six, was born with a coating of coarse black fur on her face and across more than 60 per cent of her body.
The nursery made newspaper announcements asking for the toddler’s relatives to claim her, and six months later the grandfather of one of her cousins came forward.
Liu Mingying has looked after Liu ever since, but worries she will always be taunted about her appearance
She has been unable to make friends as other children are either frightened of her or make fun of her.
There is currently no official explanation for Liu’s condition, although it is very similar to a syndrome known as Hypertrichosis Universalis, which leaves sufferers covered entirely in body hair and affects just one in a billion people.
