Louis Coulon and His 11-Foot Beard As a Nest for His Cats

Born in 1826, Louis Coulon was already shaving by age 12 and his beard was growing so fast that by age 14, Coulon already had a 50 centimeter (19.6 inches) beard. He could not keep up with shaving so just let it grow. By 1904 it was 3.3 metres (11 feet) long and served as a nest for his cats.
