The hashtag has over 3.3million views on TikTok, with hundreds of videos from people explaining their plans for a 'feral girl summer.'

Mainly, people outline being a 'feral girl' as the opposite of being 'that girl' – a phrase used to describe people who wake up early, exercise, and focus on staying healthy and organized.

To be a 'feral girl,' as described by many TikTokers, you simply do not care about anything.

You can party all night and still go to school or work the next day; you do not put much effort into your hair and make-up – 'feral girls' do what they want, when they want, without fear of repercussion.
