How long before humanity locks in?

It's interesting that the feral girl was three when she joined a pack of dogs as most three year olds speak quite a bit. Perhaps she first ventured after the dogs as little kids do because they are cute and cuddly and eventually forgot her human ways. I have a cousin who was adopted from Guatamala and spoke fluent Spanish but within a few years she had completely forgotten her Spanish. I guess at that age you can still forget what makes you human. This story certainly takes the romance out of Zeus being raised by a goat and Romulus and Remus by the She Wolf.
