Bigfoot is a mysterious creature that is said to live in the forests of North America. Some people think Bigfoot is just an urban legend and scientists have yet to prove the creature’s existence, however, some people swear they have seen Sasquatch.
So what do we know about Bigfoot? Here are four interesting ‘facts’ about this legendary creature.
Bigfoot is not a creature but a whole species
Many people believe that Bigfoot is a giant ape-like creature that inhabits the wilds of different countries.
Bigfoot in China is called a Yeti, while in Nepal the creature is called Abominable Snowman. In Australia, they are called Yowie.
There are hundreds of Bigfoot sightings recorded each year
According to the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO), they receive reports of hundreds of Bigfoot sightings in North America each year.
Washington is the state where Bigfoot seems to be spotted most often, with 700 sightings recorded by BFRO.
Bigfoot is about 2m5 . high
BFRO estimated Bigfoot’s size based on footprints, according to which the creature would be about 2m5 tall.
Bigfoot’s legs are said to be “giant”, many have compared them to the size of a “trash can”.
In addition, Bigfoot emits a strong stench, usually to alert the presence of a male (or female – female Bigfoot, too, according to BFRO).
Bigfoot is described as a two-legged primate, they can walk like humans on two legs with flexibility.
Two men discovered a frozen Bigfoot in 2008
However, they later realized this was just a frozen gorilla costume.
There’s no solid scientific evidence for Bigfoot, but the creature’s fanbase is undaunted.
Even so, there is actually fossil evidence to suggest the existence of a prehistoric ape that could stand upright. Specifically, the researchers found Gigantopithecus blacki, about 3 meters tall and weighing up to 270 kilograms, based on fossil evidence.
However, this ape is native to Southeast Asia, not North America, and has been extinct for thousands of years.
Although there have been many Bigfoot movies and photos over the years, nothing has been definitively verified.
