Ok, so of course this is a total fake but I have seen it getting passed around the internet the last little bit.
The story is being passed off as a real but rare condition known as Serpentosis Malianorcis. The thing is there is no such disease as Serpentosis Malianorcis.
Here is the story that is being attached to the photo.
"Bangkok| 8 year old Mai Li Fay, from Bangkok, is far from living the usual life of a girl her age. Everyday, thousands of people gather to the front of her family’s house to get a chance of seeing and possibly touching the young girl, a gesture which both buddhists and hindu pilgrims seem to perceive as a garantee of good fortune.
According to the country’s top medical expert, Dr Ping Lao, the young girl suffers a very rare syndrome known as the Serpentosis Malianorcis or Jing Jing’s disease, which gives her lower body a distinct reptilian form and aspect. Only a handful of such cases have been recorded throughout history, so the scientific knowledge accumulated about the pathology is rather limited and there is no cure in sight at the moment.
The Fay family have welcomed the situation brought by Mai Li’s situation with a mix of anguish and excitement, as the never ending lines of tourists and pilgrims have brought the badly impoverished family some substantial revenues and given them an important raise in their social status but cost them there privacy and intimacy."
There are even reports being posted of large crowds coming to see "Snake girl" but of course these are not true either.
The image is a photo shopped image and the story is Fake.
