Felix Wehrle

Felix Wehrle AKA "The Elastic-Skin Man," could stretch his skin out and could also bend his fingers backwards and forwards. He could stretch his skin on any part of his body. This was because Wehrle suffered from Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, an unusual connective tissue disorder that, in some forms, makes your skin very flexible. He performed at many Barnum & Bailey shows.
