Feral: The children raised by wolves
This topic is about Night Creature. Fantasy: Book about a boy raised by wolves. May 26, PM. I don't know a specific year unfortunately. This will contain spoilers as I will type whatever I remember from this book: It was about a teenage boy raised by wolves from childhood. He still remembered bits and pieces of when he was with humans. He made clothes and a bow for himself while living in the woods.
Forgot Password? It's not just Mowgli — the trope of the human child raised by wild animals is as old as literature itself. Even one of the two main characters in "The Epic of Gilgamesh," one of the earliest surviving works of literature, grew up among wild cattle and gazelles. But why is that striking image so prevalent in our fiction? Maybe because it's not so fictional after all. That was the day he was torn from his home and forced to live among strange and dangerous animals: human beings. Marcos was 19 years old, but he'd been living in a cave near the Sierra Morena mountains in Spain with a pack of wolves for the past 12 years.
By Nic White For Mailonline. A man raised by wolves for 12 years says his life in human society was a failure and he wishes he could go live among the animals again. He was found as a year-old running around half-naked and barefoot only able to communicate by grunting and brought back to civilisation.

I get it, five years old is young, but to lose all ability to communicate, not to mention all memory of what humans even are? The evidence for the seemingly arbitrary age of five is that we had already figured out by then that humans are essentially helpless during their early childhood, which is objectively true. Perhaps he was mentally disabled, you might say.
Animals in fiction range from the almost human to the bestial, but since Most Writers Are Human , animals tend to think, feel and talk like we do. Thus a literal Mama Bear might be an ordinary parent — or a wildly offbeat role model. This trope ranges from a purely cosmetic touch of exoticism to a comedy trope to a full-blown otherness trope that drives drama. A character raised by animals will seem unusual to ordinary folk. They may speak crudely or just strangely.
