Legend has it that Romulus and Remus,

the twin founders of Rome, were abandoned as children

and had to be suckled by a wolf until they were discovered

by a wandering shepherd.

Eventually, they founded the great city on Palatine Hill,

the very place where they had

been cared for by the wolf.

This is likely just a myth, but history abounds

with real stories of children who really were

raised by animals.
