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



Well, take a guy like Shaq, he's 7' 1" and wears a size 23 shoe (almost 16 inches long). That's close to a Bigfoot. Its proportional. Also, foot size has little to do with leg circumference. Its more about stability of the animal than it is proportions. If you'll notice, most 4 legged animals have pretty tiny feet since they have 4 stabilization pads.

Most Bigfoot prints vary between 13 and 20 inches. The largest ever found that I know of is 27 inches.

So there you go, Shaq is the bigfoot. I still don't think they exist. smile.gif

I suspect this is a photoshopped gorilla, but who knows.

^Doubt if it's a gorilla, the legs being too long--unless that feature is photoshopped. More likely a man in costume. As I have remarked before, I still think there is a minuscule chance BFs exist, but if one turns up, I very much doubt it will be in Georgia.

Apparently this guy gave the researcher the samples he talks about. Sightings all over Florida at the moment.




Trail cam from Humbolt Co California. Bet this Squatch gets the crunchiest buds.

Has this been subjected to DNA analysis?

No clue. The problem here is contamination.


Apparent BF vocalizations, I don't know why but they are very convincing to me:

FINALLY found it. The Six Million Dollar Man Bigfoot scene, this is what started it all for me. Andre the Giant FTW. Have to watch this twice.

Catching a fish with your hands:
post #506 of 743
Just finished a couple of books germane to this thread: One was Still Living? Yeti, Sasquatch and the Neanderthal Enigma by Myra Shackley. Dr. Shackley is a very accomplished woman with a Ph.D. in archeology. so her intellectual and scientific credentials seem impeccable. Among other achievements, she is now a priestess in the Church of England. A lot of her book is devoted to the more manlike cryptid hominids of central Asia--particularly the Almas of Mongolia and the Kaptars of the Caucasus region. She makes a very cogent case for their existence and suggests that the Almas/Kaptars might well be surviving Neanderthals. However, her book was published in 1983, and 30 years later, what has turned up? Nothing! Some have argued that the recently discovered Denisovan humans of 30,000 years could be progenitors of the Almas et al., but the Denisonvans seem altogether too human by most accounts.

The other was the new book Between Man and Beast by Monte Reel, which is an account of the life of Paul Du Chaillu and his discovery of the gorilla. (Some skulls obtained by natives had been sent to England shortly before Du Chaillu went into the jungles of Gabon and shot some.) The discovery of this manlike monster created a worldwide sensation and certainly added fuel to the fire of the nascent debate on evolution arising from Darwin's publication of The Origin of Species. Du Chaillu was the son of a trader and had been fostered by Thomas Savage, the American missionary who had sent the gorilla skulls to England. It is perhaps significant for this thread that Du Chaillu merely marched into the jungles of Gabon, and after considerable effort and hardship found some gorillas and shot them. Case closed. This is very unlike this endless quest for mystery man-apes that can't be too very different from the gorilla.I can't imagine that the jungles of equatorial Africa were or are less impenetrable than the rain forests of the Pacific Northwest, much less the woodlands of most of North America.

Re 1st paragraph. I think there are a lot of hominids which are missing from the puzzle. None of the paths I see make much sense save for Giganticopithicus.

2nd paragraph, its discouraging. I doubt he just stole a march in the jungle quick and easy but your point is taken.

The response I have is that the Sasquatch is nocturnal, is much more intelligent than the gorilla, and has learned to hide from humans. If its proven to be real, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a period where it presented itself openly to humans, that is until a few got their asses eaten for lunch and then it learned to stay away and that homo sapiens are to be feared. Now its instinctual.


This is pretty incredible:

OJFC. Myakka? Are you kidding me? Citing shit like that doesn't help your case. Google maps it sometime.

I have no idea what Myakka is/where it is. Googled it, it looks like a 10 sq mile state park. I see a lot of empty land between there and the atlantic coast. Never been there, though.

This started with a recent sighting. A group of people formed on the side of the road and observed a large upright animal for like 15 mins. Multiple people filmed it and photographed. There have been multiple sightings there over the last couple of years.

Sorry, my response was a little cranky. But if you've ever visited the area, the idea of a Bigfoot (or "Skunk Ape" as we call them) inhabiting it is pretty silly. That empty land is Myakka State Park and State Forest. It is heavily visited by hunters, birdwatchers, cyclists, kayakers, hikers, and even a few loggers. It even has a little canopy skywalk thingee. That "empty land" is also bisected by I-75, and is surrounded by old folks to the east (i.e. Fort Myers/"Dunk City") and cattle farms to the west. It's about as empty as Mt. Rogers or Shenandoah.
