The Big FootBigfoot

A very large, hairy, humanoid creature from North American folklore reputed to inhabit wilderness areas of the U.S. and Canada, esp. the Pacific Northwest. Also, known as Big Foot, Sasquatch,The Abominable Snowman, or Yeti.


The Abominable Snowman, or Metch-Kangmi in Tibetan, is a huge, hairy creature that walks upright and haunts the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas. For years explorers have reported footprints measuring as much as 12½ by 6½ inches in the snow.

While leading an expedition on Mt. Annapurna in 1970, Don Whillans spotted a large, furry creature walking on two legs on a nearby mountain. He watched through binoculars for half an hour before the "snowman" vanished in a clump of trees.

Scientists believe bears, which can walk on two legs, could have left some of the footprints. Other observers suggest wolves, goats, snow leopards, or perhaps falling rocks or snow could be responsible. However, the Sherpa people of the region have traditionally believed that the Himalayan peaks are haunted by demons and spirits, while the Yeti, an ancient beast, prowls the mountains.


Variously referred to as the Yiren, Yeh Ren, Chinese Wild man, "The Wild man of Shennongjia", Man-Monkey or "Man Bear" is said to be an as yet undiscovered hominid in China's remote mountainous and forested Hubei province.[1]

Many people think that there is a species and that the Yeti, Bigfoot, Yeren, Yowie, etc, are all related somehow and that when all the continents were together they traveled to different places and adapted very quickly. This theory has not been proven yet but many people believe it to be true.

Well the most notable thing about Bigfoot is his overly big feet for the most part they are docile in fact in all of my run ins with them I have never been attacked but escorted out of the area with a little Bigfoot shock and awe.
