In the 1700s in France, a man named Tarrare stalked the streets eating literally anything in his path. At the age of 17, he weighed only 100 pounds and could eat a quarter of an entire cow in a day. He could also wrap the skin of his stomach around his entire body. After being kicked out of his house for being terrifying, he traveled as part of a freak show, consuming anything put in front of him. Tarrare would eat anything from garbage to flint to even live animals.  

Tarrare enlisted in the army and was quickly sent to a hospital after almost starving to death on a diet meant for only one normal man. There he became the test subject of curious doctors, who fed him everything from live snakes and eels to meals meant for 15 people. Tarrare, however, was kicked out of the hospital after getting caught trying to eat corpses. During his stay a 14-month-old baby mysteriously disappeared from the infirmary, and it's believed he ate it.
