For hundreds of years, in North America, people have had encounters with a creature known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot. This phenomenon can no longer be dismissed as urban legend or myth. Bigfoot is a real creature that lives among our forest around the world.
Bigfoot is described as a humanlike or apelike creature, covered with black or brown fur. People in many parts of the United States and Canada, especially in the Pacific Northwest, claim to have seen this creature. Bigfoot is said to be six to nine feet, tall, and very strong. It smells bad and has large feet, about sixteen inches long and seven inches wide. Bigfoot walks upright and eats roots, berries, deer, and elk. It is supposed to be very shy and afraid of people, but curious about them, too.
The Bigfoot creature has many names. Canadians call it the Sasquatch. This word comes from a Native American word for “hairy giant.” Some scientists call it Gigantopithecus. Other common names from different cultures around the world include: Wild Man, Admoniable Snowman, Oh-mah-ah, Omah, Meh-Teh, Dzu-Teh, Feifei, Orang- Dalam, Yeh- The, Skunk Ape, Windigo, and Almas.

Some people suggest Bigfoot is actually Pithesanthropus erectus, a species believed to be closely related to humans, but now extinct. Pithesanthropus erectus teeth and fossilized remains have been found and proven to exist. They were large apelike/humanoid creatures. The females were about 7 feet tall and the males 10-12 feet tall and they coexisted with homo erectus for thousands of years. They existed for over 6 million years and only went "extinct" about 100,000 yrs ago. Maybe an evolutionary offshoot that had migrated north survived and is now what we call present day Bigfoot.
For many years Bigfoot was considered to be restricted to the Pacific Northwest. This region was perceived as the only area of North America sufficiently forested and undeveloped to support a population of this species without its members being commonly observed....
