How does it feel to have 98 percent of your body covered in hair? How will people think of you? Some will even mistake you for an animal, right?

Well, the Gomez family from Mexico is said to be the hairiest family in the world according to records contained in the Guinness World Records.

Victor Gomez, Gabriel Gomez, Luisa Lilia and Jesus Manuel are four of a family of 19 suffering from Congenital Generalized Hypertrichosis which causes excessive facial and torso hair.

The men in the family have covered with thick hair of approximately 98 percent of their body apart from their hands and feet.
