Net, aka the Wolf Girl, has long hair covering her face and body like a wolf; the Scorpion Queen and the Centipede King are the longest couple ever to live with poison creatures; the Penguin Man is an armless man who vowed the crowd by drawing with his feet; King Cobra is the man who kissed a snake for the longest time, the Iron Hand Man fries chicken in boiling hot oil with his bare hands. 

As for newbie Mameaw, she hasn’t stopped growing and is currently 190 centimeters.

Mr. Sultan said, “This is my first time in Thailand and I’m very excited. My height has never been a problem for me. Things like clothes and shoes I have to order them specially. I am glad to have met Malee and Mamaew who are going through the same thing as me. I understand them completely.”

To celebrate their birthday, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! welcomed children from the Father Ray Foundation and showed them around the museum for free.
