Raised by Wolves - Feral child - Netflix

A feral child (also called wild child) is a human child who has lived isolated from human contact from a very young age, where they have little or no experience of human care, behavior, or, crucially, of human language. Some feral children have been confined by people (usually their own parents). Feral children may have experienced severe abuse or trauma before being abandoned or running away. Feral children are sometimes the subjects of folklore and legends, typically portrayed as having been raised by animals.

Around the 20th century, psychologists were attempting to differentiate between behavior and biological culture. Feral children are those who live in isolation and those who live with animals provided examples of this dilemma. Prior to the 1600s, feral and wild children stories were usually limited to myths and legends. In those tails, the depiction of feral children included hunting for food, running on all fours, and not knowing language. Philosophers and scientists were infatuated with such children, and began to question if these children were part of a different species from the human family. The question was taken seriously as science tried to name and categorize the development of humans, and the understanding of the natural world in the 18th and 19th century.
