Bigfoot

Bigfoot is one of the most famous cryptid animals, up there with the Loch Ness Monster and the Abominable Snowman. Bigfoot is similar to the Abominable Snowman, but the Abominable Snowman lives in the Himalayans and Bigfoot lives in the Pacific Northwest. He’s one of the few mythical creatures from America. The Abominable Snowman is also called a Yeti, and Bigfoot is also known as Sasquatch. Never get them mixed up because the differences are huge and the details matter. I grew up watching the History Channel right around the time they were making the shift from legitimate historical facts to bogus stories about ghosts, aliens, and the paranormal. They presented Bigfoot as if he was a real creature. They had plaster casts of his tracks, hair samples, audio recordings, photographs, raw video footage, and reliable eyewitness accounts. The world’s top scientists speculated that it might be a Gigantopithicus, a supposedly extinct species of giant apes. Bigfoot wasn’t a fantasy creature; he was a real animal that was so rare they couldn’t prove that he existed. Then I grew up and started to doubt that there could be a giant species of apes living in the mountains and forests in modern day USA, but every couple of years some hunter claims to have the hide of Bigfoot and he makes the headlines again. It makes me wonder, it makes me wish. Bigfoot may only be a myth and a legend, yet he’s left a legacy that will endure long after you and I are gone. That might not make him real but he definitely exists.
