As a marine biologist, I believe this unusual photo is of a Homo sapiens hirsuticus. It is said that as this species ages, it loses the hair that gives it its subspecific name. The older, hairless forms are still referred to by this scientific name however. Almost all specimens of this subspecies collected to date are male; only a few females are known to exist and they are usually non-mating. Given this, I have no idea how the species survives!
