Did you know that Australia has the biggest wild population of camels in the world? Some camels were brought here in 1840, then a few more and a few more. They were released into the wild for whatever reasons. There are approximately 3 million wild camels now. They are deemed a pest and are regularly culled.

I wonder if you can use peroxide to lighten the fur.

I think they should switch out the shoes. White tennis shoes are almost always a bad idea in my experience. :lol:

Even bigfoot knows not to wear white after Labor Day.

I'm open to all paranormal. The big argument against large cryptids (like monsters and bigfoots) is tht such a large creature would leave a signs, Indeed bigfoot does leave prints in soft mud (literally thousands collected over the past 100 years).

The Loch ness lakes are full of food such as fish and eels so assuming it's some type of relic Plesiosaur then there is plenty to eat. Alternatively it (and other large cryptids) might be able to phase in and out of some type of wormhole in space/time so might only appear temporarily to eat the odd haddock or old Scotsman and then return whence they came.

I don't want to bleach the suit to match the shoes, I want a reddish brown suit for completely non-hoax related reasons.

So far any fur attributed to bigfoot has always been tied to other animals, deer and bears primarily.

I wonder how many of the bigfoot foot prints (bigfoot prints?) look like that.

You've got to love how grown adult humans still believe in fictional creatures like Sasquatches, the Loch Ness Monster and Jesus and angels but refuse to believe that the Earth is round, that vaccines save lives and definitely do not cause autism, and that the dinosaurs really existed millions of years ago.

Not all the prints are easily defined

Just like labelling all UFOs as swamp gas

Don't know about flat earth, vaccines, Jesus or Dinosaurs...(you don't believe in dinosaurs?)

But big foot and lake monsters are fascinating and worth a look
