One of the most interesting aspects of the Bigfoot phenomenon is that is almost universal. Every continent has some version of it. Also many of the local monster legends in the United States are actually Bigfoot by a different name.
Yep - and in every case there's a potato quality camera on hand to capture the sighting. :lol:

We don’t have them here in the Ozarks because the Ozark Howler ate all of them.

Dr Jeff Meldrum's book: Sasquatch is the best overall work on the phenomenon I have read to date.

Yes. Jeff Meldrum is an actual anthropologist. His vids on Utube are quite good for the "open minded skeptic" like myself who accepts the possibility of the existence of "relic hominids" (as Meldrum) even if we dont accept that their existence is actually proven.

There's an interesting documentary produced by National Geographic claiming the Himalayan Yeti is some type of hybrid Polar bear. The problem is that the local Sherpa are quite capable of distinguishing a bear from a human and they refer to the Yeti as Minyat which when asked to draw they depict as a hairy 9ft human (sound familiar).

The folks at National Geographic then come up with the hypothesis that its a relic from tales of the Sherpa forefather's experience with extinct apes which has been passed down from generation to generation for 20,000 years.

Again the problem is that old time Sherpas living in the Himlayas say quite categorically they saw the Minyat the week before? While its not proof, it kind of makes the National Geographic team look unprofessional making stuff up and ignoring the locals.

The polar bear thing is from a recent study conducted on samples of hair and tissue sent from around the world - in response to an invitation "to send us your samples from alleged humanlike crytids". All of the samples were tested for DNA, and all turned out to be of mundane origin (dog hairs, deer, elk, carpet hairs, etc). But one curious Yeti sample had polar bear DNA (polar bears dont live in Tibet today). That led to the theory that the yeti myth is some kind of memory of ice age bears related to polar bears living in the region 20 thousand years ago.

Have heard the opposite thing about local Nepalese Sherpas. They will see a local spectaled bear off to the side of the trail and scream "yeti! yeti!" according to one witness I heard on the radio.

The NG documentary incorporated human-neanderthal DNA sequences into their hypothesis so I think they were referring to memory of running into some relic humanoid population (neanderthals?) some 20,000 years ago (rather than memory of hybrid bears). Neanderthals lived in the Iberian peninsular as recently as 24,000 years ago so its very plausible when our ancestors first crossed into the Himalayas or crossed the ice bridge across the Bering Strait they cam across relic populations whom they classified as Sasquatch or Yeti.

Yes the DNA sequences of the hair samples found they were bears, the bigfoots seem to be extremely careful to avoid leaving hair anywhere.

I think its a little arrogant to dismiss native people, whether in Australia, north America or the Himalayas when they quite categorically believe they see bigfoots in their land. The pre-colonial native American totems for example only include actual living animals in their local area but also include the heads of Sasquatch which they are acknowledging as part of the fauna and not as some spirit-being.

Neanderthals were hardly gigantic in stature, being shorter than modern humans. And as Neanderthals wore clothes, made art, and used fire, I think one would have to look for some more primitive hominid to fill the Bigfoot bill. More likely than not, Neanderthals and other archaic humans were not much different than modern humans.

All correct about Neanderthal which further discredits the NG documentary.

The possibility of Giganthropicus (the common homninid candidate for bigfoot) survivng into the ice-age is extremely remote given their fossils seem to be restricted to tropical zones (their closest living relative today is the Orangutan) and its likely they would have been wiped out by the Neanderthals or Denisovans.

The fact that they lived in the tropics has nothing to do with whether or not they could have survived the Ice Age. The areas they lived in remained tropical during the ice age. In fact they would have had more living space during the Ice Age because the glaciers up north locked up water, so sea levels dropped, so there was more dry land in tropical Asia than now. Their fossils peter out at 300 thousand years ago. So yes they would have encounter archaic humans like Homo Erectus, and the later Denisovians and Neanderthals. And the confrontation between the two primate species may have contributed to their extinction (ie early humans might have killed them off). But an offshoot might have survived until now.

But most American bigfoot descriptions and photographs look like hybrid human-gorillas. Not orangutan like creatures (with an exception of a famous alleged photo of an alleged Florida skunk ape that does look very orangutan-like). So it bigfoot is real its most likely a cousin of both humans, and the living known African apes.
