    interesting! I`m always a little sceptical, and those no way for us folks sitting at our computers to really know if these were faked, but it`s a fact that there are life forms on our planet that we still don`t know of. We find new plants, fish, birds, etc all the time. Who`s to say that there aren`t large creatures living in the mountains and woods.

    I do believe that creatures like that exist. Like jtrebowski said, we are always discovering new creatures or rediscovering ones we thought were extinct. But Destination Truth (Josh Gates` show) is a little too far out there. They always seem to just miss some amazing creature. They`ll get "something", but not definitive proof. I don`t think the people on the show faked it, but someone else might have.

    Unexplainable != proof for anything. It just means we can`t explain them right now. They`re a TV crew, why don`t they have video of them MAKING the discovery?

    It`s not the first time a guy comes by with footprints and most of the time those are actually made out of solid moulded clay... not dirt and sticks.

    If this really counts as evidence I will question the scientific method used to come to such conclusion.

    Anatomically legitimate means it has the "shape" of something that could be alive.

    A lot of fake taxidermy have been deemed "anatomically legitimate" but that`s just because no one could see the stitches.

    People blow my mind, "NOP, DEY FAKED IT CANT EXIST EVER NOPE WE AS HUMASN EXLPORED THE ENTIRE PLANET THROUGH AND THROUGH AND FOUN DEVERYTHING EVER".

    I`m not saying a yeti exists, but, you have just as much reason to believe that as I do. Unless you hunted down every single yeti on earth and took them out, you have no idea. Probably one person on this entire website will ever climb the Himalayas to begin with. Did we not just find a bunch of new types of species of animals a few months ago?

    I can see a yeti existing, after all the himalayas are a very, very remote place and there`s a lot of room for a yeti to hide. Plus similar creatures existed in the recent past.

    I`m a pretty good sport as far as this stuff. I believe in the paranormal and the possibility of life on other worlds, but the Yeti myth is just that..a myth. This type of creature would have been hunted to extinction thousands of years ago by ancient man, who was, and is ruthlessly efficient. 10,000 years ago mammoths were making impressions at the coast by rubbing their backs against large rocks and very large flightless birds were running around. This myth carries about as much weight as the Chupacabra or the Mongolian sand snakes.

    Granted the Himilayahs are remote but the people who go there typically are on the vacation of their lifetime and have cameras. Should be photographic proof by now.
    I`m skeptical on the Yeti but I know ghosts are fake and UFO`s are real.

    I`ve been digging a lot into cryptozoology during my rather short existence, and the posts beneath me saying stuff about man having explored the planet to the fullest extent is only half true. Take a look at the abysmal depths of the oceans where distinguished species are discovered every year, the jungles of Borneo, etc. As the existence, it could just be that are things out there. Native American tribes all have varying legends about Sasquatch creatures, and the Tibetan mountains (as well as China, Japan and many other areas) have similar myths. If you rule out the possibility of the Yeti`s existence, (and it`s really the problem with cryptozoology) then you might just as well rule out the existence of any cryptid, dead or alive. All could have been faked with today`s technology. On a side note, only people convinced of the existence actually claim to see it. And bikenutt, are you talking about the Tätzelwurms in the Gobi or the Deathworms?

    Maybe after he walked onto something like, oh i dunno, SNOW, and then it shifted before they got there. But really, I think its fake, people have made fake foot prints before

    I`d be right up there yelling fake too, and as much as I want to, I`ve seen this guys show before, and he always walks away empty handed, or ends up disproving what people claim to be monsters and whatnot. I don`t think I`ve ever seen hard evidence from him, and I don`t think he`d be the type to just make it up. Definitely not saying it`s "Big foot" or a "yeti" but I bet it`s something real.

    Why don`t any of these guys ever have a good tracker with them? They know that if they find something it will be a footprint. Don`t these footprints lead somewhere? A hairy beast doesn`t shed, hell I shed and I barely have any hair. There are people in this world that could track an animal across the Congo, but no one ever seems to hire these guys, odd.

    You seem like an intelligent fellow, and yes I realize we have not explored a good deal of the planet. My argument against the existence of this creature is a simple one. If you look back at historical data pertaining to the extinction of the planet`s species you will notice some evolutionary constants. One of these is the fact the first species to die off (whether it be a cataclysmic event or just the incursion of man) are always the larger species first. This is one of the rule`s of extinction, thus this greatly reduces the likelihood of said species existing at all. We also have to take into account that NO real physical evidence has ever been found, no photo`s, no carcass, nothing. We have found very well preserved mammoth and human`s remains in the same region as the so-called yeti though. This creature may have existed hundreds of thousands of years ago, but having a big-ass Yeti running around at present, is near impossible as far as nature is concerned.

    For all those "Believers", here`s a harsh dose of reality. The Tasmanian Devil population has a facial tumor disease spreading through it. Devil population has dropped by 80% over the last 10 years, and there are fears that IF THE POPULATION DROPS BELOW 10,000, the species will go extinct.

    That`s right - you need at least 10,000 to be considered a viable breeding population for survivability. Any less and you get mutated, deformed cross-bred offspring.

    So yeti`s, sasquatches, bunyips, thylacines and Loch Ness monsters are all non-existent, because even IF they ever existed, they don`t have the necessary numbers to breed.

    Lionhart..you are talking about necessary numbers to breed..but Tasmanian Devil lifespan is around 6 years in the wild, give or take a few. Galápagos tortoise on the other hand can live up to 150 years in the wild. I`m not saying any of these things exist. All I`m saying is sometimes there are things beyond the grasp of current research. If there`s something that can life 150 years, then maybe there`s something that can live longer, therefore even with incredibly low numbers for breeding, the species can still be around for a long time with what little numbers they have.

    Fake footprints. Some guy was doing something like this for awhile, making "big foot feet" out of plaster and walking around with them. He fooled people for many years. I imagine this is something like that.

    Yeah I was wondering that too... I`d imagine a photo of the print wouldn`t be as good evidence to test for anatomical features, but it could prove that he didn`t just go there and dig a footprint or something.

    To bikenutt and lionheart: I couldn`t agree more. Lake monsters are a different issue though. Loch Ness, we know those pics were about an elephant swimming with its strunk out of the water. But about Caddie and Ogopogo, who knows huh. If Bloop can actually be an enormous f*cking creature, then maybe there`s a chance we`d find evolved marine reptiles deep down there as well. Imagine dinosaurs with viper fish eyes and teeth. Whether they`d be actually able to have a high survivability outside deep water is debatable. There`s always the slight possibility that these things exist. I know for one that it`s hard to track down animals in the Hymalayan areas because of heavy snow storms. Various caverns have also not been explored decently. There could well be living links between the DNA of ours and our ancestors (apart from known species). Only time will tell, and hell, we might not even be around to witness.

    They`ve got video of them finding these. These are the guys from the SyFy (Sci-Fi) Channel`s show, "Monster Quest" and they filmed the finds as well as some other "phenomena" in the region.

    Thanks for the response
    As far as ocean/river/lake species go you really can`t rule out anything. Recently(a couple years ago I think) they found a Celocanth in the waters of the Amazon. This species was thought to be extinct for thousands of years as only fossils had been found. Lo and behold some fisherman pulled up a five foot specimen. Despite these sorts of discoveries you really have to take the "giant sea beast" thing w/ a grain of salt. You would be more likely to find gigantism/hypertrophy in squid and octopus species(which I find fascinating).
