Description of Bigfoot
Bigfoot, which has long been part of American folklore, is described as being similar in stature to a man but larger and covered in hair.
They are usually said to be somewhere between 6ft and 10ft tall, with their hair ranging in tone from black to dark red and brown.
In many descriptions they are said to have a low and prominent forehead. In several apparent sightings in the past, including the most famous by they are also similar in appearance to a male gorilla, or to several different types of cavemen from millions of years ago.They are also said to have a pungent and somewhat unpleasant smell. Like humans, they are said to be omnivores although they are said to be active mainly at night.
There have been a significant number of reported sightings over the years, including of what people have believed to be bigfoot themselves, and also of apparent footprints — some measuring as long as 25in, around double the length of a US size 15 shoe.As of July 2017, the state with the largest number of credible sightings (according to the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization) was Washington with 629, while the province with the most sightings in Canada was British Columbia with 130.
But while many groups believe in the cryptid’s existence, critics say that these sightings have been either hoaxes or people misidentifying other animal, usually bears.Stories of bigfoot-type beasts — often referred to as "wild man" or "hairy man" — have long been part of the folk history of indigenous cultures in the Pacific Northwest. The name Sasquatch is a modern Anglicised version of sásq'ets — a word used by various First Nations people in British Columbia, Canada. Most recent sightings have also been in the pacific northwest, however there have been thousands over the years including many in other parts of North America. There are several organizations dedicated to looking for an researching bigfoot, with the most famous and largest being the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, who have a comprehensive database of bigfoot sightings and reports. The search for bigfoot has also been the subject of several television series including Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot and Destination America's Mountain Monsters. Bigfoot/Sasquatch is similar but different to other creatures reported across North America and the rest of the world including the Yeti, Skunk Ape, Orang Pendek, Barmanou, Mande Barung, Yowie, and Yeren.
