Capuchins (Monkeys) Raise Women in Jungle

I'm not kidding:
In her new book, a British grandmother is claiming that she had quite a wild side in her youth.Marina Chapman’s book, “The Girl with No Name,” claims that she was raised by monkeys in the Colombian jungle for about five years of her childhood, adopting their behavior and eating the same food. Chapman claims that a group of capuchin monkeys became her surrogate family after she was kidnapped and abandoned in a Colombian jungle when she was 4 years old.She says she survived by eating the monkeys’ discarded fruit and nuts, eventually forgetting her parents and even her own name. She also learned how to climb high in the trees, which she can still do today in her mid-60s.
