- Jesus Aceves
Jesus "Chuy" Aceves was born in
Loreto, Zacatecas, Mexico. He was the second person in his family born with a strange and rare condition known as hypertrichosis. Chuy's face is covered with hair, and looks like the legendary wolfman, or as some call him, a monkey man. Chuy is married and has two daughters, both of them have the condition. His sister, Lili, was also born with Hypertrichosis. She is married with one son, and works as a police officer in Mexico. Chuy is currently working backstage on Circus Vargas.
In 2005, Jesus, shaved for the very first time for the documentary "It's Not Easy Being a
Wolf Boy" for the BBC. He shaved in the hope of getting a "regular" job so he could work near his home, and not leave his family for long periods of time. Unfortunately, the pay of a regurlar job was not as good as a freak showor circuses.
In 2007, Chuy, was featured on the books "
Ripley's Believe It or Not!", and " Guiness World Records".
Many in his family believe that they are descendants of
Julia Pastranathe Monkey girl.
