In Search Of Bigfoot

In the remote forests of North America lives a large bipedal creature commonly referred to as Bigfoot, he is also known by many other names including Sasquatch. This creature is between 6 and 10 feet tall, is totally covered in fur and weighs over 500 pounds. It has a low forehead with large eyes, and is often said to have a distinct unpleasant smell. Casts of footprints taken in places where the creatures have been sighted measure over 16 inches.

Tales of this animal have been found throughout native cultures in North America. Since 1900 alone, there have been well over 400 accounts of people having seen this animal or that have found evidence of its presence. One of the most famous sightings of this creature occurred in 1967. Robert Gimlin and Roger Patterson captured on film a large ape like animal walking through the woods. This film is still said to be some of the most credible pieces of evidence of the creature’s existence in the world today.

There are many theories as to what this creature actually is. One theory suggests that it is a gigantopithecus that has managed to adapt and survive. Gigantopithecus, the largest species of ape, lived more than a million years ago. Fossils of this large ape have been found all over the Asian continent. The belief is that the gigantopithecus migrated across the Bering Strait along with many other animals of the period.

This video investigates the Native American Legend of “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch” as the Native Americans call it. A large, hairy beast, resembling a man.

Scientists and Cryptozoologists discuss the possibility that this creature may inhabit the thousands of square miles of uninhabited timberland in the American Northwest. The legend of Bigfoot dates back may centuries and sightings have been reported continuously since before the white man came to this region of America and they continue today.

Archival footage of a suspected Bigfoot is shown and discussed with both witnesses and scientists evaluating the film.

    I think big foot is real because I was in Australia visiting my family that was struggling and we had to sleep outside in tents because the part of my family I was visiting was indians. So they like to share thier indian culture. So then we heard some sounds coming from the woods and I tried to wake up my sisters and brothers but the wouldn’t budge, so I went outside and I took a flashlight with me and so their standing just a few feet away was big foot looking at our food. I flashed the flashlight at him and he ran. I wanted to scream but I didn’t want to wake up no body. I am not making this up. I promise.
