A video of Zanzimana Ellie, a grass-fed Rwandan boy who prefers to live in the forest, appeared on social media.
Reports collected that Ellie, who is 21 years old, cannot speak, eats grass and prefers to live in the forest as an animal.
According to her mother, Ellie, despite being a special girl, is a blessing from God and an answer to her prayers, since she and her husband were several years without a child.
Ellie’s mother revealed that she and her husband, who were desperate to have a child, prayed to God even for an abnormal child and Ellie is the answer to that prayer.
She confirmed that he does not eat the food she prepares for him, but prefers to eat fruits such as bananas and, most of the time, grasses, adding that people in her community call him a monkey.
