Another blob squatch... theory is that its 2 young ones (white and dark) wrestling and then a large male comes in to break it up and investigate whether the disturbance drew any attention.

Just found this thread... how tall does this "Bigfoot" would be? How much it would weight? eh.gif Just curious, in next post I will tell why.

Most reports indicate a creature seven to eight feet tall (213.5 to 244cm). Generally, they are reported as being appreciably more massive than a human. Most estimates of weight start around 300 pounds. I think this is assuming their bodily proportions are similar to man's. If they are more like a gorilla's, they would be much heavier. For example, a robust, muscular yet athletic 6-foot-tall man might weigh 240 pounds, while an adult male gorilla standing 5'7" might weigh 200 pounds more.

With the reported shoulder width and depth of footprints we're talking animals that weigh above 500 lbs (230kg). I've read reports of some in the 9 to 10 foot range as well.

Curious what Betelgeuse is going to post... do we have our first SF sighting?

Thanks man! I found it hard to believe a 244cm with a similar proportion to us. Could not live to much long, if it exist. Mainly because there is a physic law in which we have a certain height due to the size of planet earth. For example, let's say that you try to increase the size of a gorilla by 10. His skeletal muscle (sorry if there is a bad translation) will increase by 10. But his weight would increase by a 100. So when the gorilla takes the first step would crush his bone legs and die due to his weight. That's why whale when they aground die, because of their weight.

The proportions of a Bigfoot are well within the boundaries of physics. Gorilla's weigh 500 pounds +. You are likely correct in that Bigfoot's have shorter lifespans. A Great Dane lives like 7 or 8 years while small dogs can live 20, for example. Also, in the wild wear and tear on the body and the environment will get at you.

Elephants can live to over 70.

Completely agree, but gorilla's have a certain height. If they were taller they will have a lot of problems.

Agree Mr Fang, but they have a certain height. biggrin.gif

A Bigfoot (assuming they exist at all) would certainly be no larger than an Alaskan Brown Bear, which can stand 9 feet tall or more on its hind legs, and can weigh up to 1,500 pounds (even more in rare cases), and they get by just fine. However, I think their lifespans are considerably shorter than most humans'--about 30 years in captivity if I'm not mistaken.

The extinct ape Gigantopithecus certainly resembled a Bigfoot and the species survived hundreds of thousands of years.

Besides, what about the dinosaurs? Many of them were far larger than any subsequent terrestrial vertebrate, and they ruled the earth for 150 million years.

Well, I guess the answer is in the legs... the size of their legs, should help to carry all that weight avoiding it from crashing. happy.gif

There's a reason they are called Bigfoot.

But how big his feet needs to be? I mean to have that height, I guessing it has to be at least somewhere in between 90cm thighs. I don't know. 

 

Take a look at Kai Greene's measurements (bodybuilder): 

 

 

  • Height: 1.73 m (5 ft 8 in)
  • Off Season Weight: 136–145 kg (300–320 lb)
  • Competition Weight: 116–121 kg (260–270 lb)
  • Arm Size: 56 cm (22 in)
  • Leg Size: 85 cm (33 in)
  • Chest size: 148 cm (58 in)

 

Check out his height and the size of his legs. eek.gif
