Ape Creatures


Is an animal apelike assumption that according to researchers in the field inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. It is also known as sasquatch. The scientific community says that the existing evidence is not sufficiently convincing and generally regarded as the result of mythology, folklore or misidentification rather than a real animal, due to lack of physical evidence and the large numbers of specimens that would necessary to maintain a population that can reproduce. Witnesses indicate characteristics not always similar, but the most common description is that of a large bipedal ape-like creature, usually a height of 1.83 m to 2.13 m approximately 160 kg with broad shoulders and sturdy structure. The head is small, pointed and low; sometimes it speaks of a ridge at the top of the skull. The eyes are usually described as small and hidden under a steep front. Except for the face, hands and feet, a thin layer of hair covering its body, usually brown or black. Huge footprints similar to a human foot, gave its name

The Wendigo
Is a mythological creature that appears in the legends of the Algonquian peoples of the eastern United States and Canada. Its appearance is described like a bestial humanoid, which he is usually associated with cannibalism, a subject considered taboo among Amerindian peoples of this part of North America. A legend known as the Wendigo psychosis, says that a person may feel an intense desire to eat human flesh, and fear to be a cannibal. Currently, the Wendigo is a character that can be recurrently in horror and modern works of fiction. Among the Ojibwa, the Naskapi and the Innu, the Wendigo are described as giant, many times larger than humans. When a wendigo completely devours a person, his stature will grow in proportion to the meat consumed, so it will never be satisfied. Thus, the wendigo simultaneously is described as a guzzler that is emaciated by starvation. In all cultures where this myth of the Wendigo is believed that, humans can become this monster if ever practiced cannibalism, or alternatively, if they are possessed by the demonic spirit of a Wendigo, often for a dream.

Skunk Ape
Is an enigmatic hominid, it is said that it inhabit the states of Florida, it is named for its appearance and for the unpleasant odor that accompanies. Those who have seen it say Bigfoot keeps resemblance in their appearance, but until today there is insufficient evidence of these sightings.

The Yeti
Due to a scientific basis, are apes that split of human evolutionary chain million years ago and belong to the branch of the Neanderthal. There are classic texts signed by Lucretius and Pliny, alluding to powerful men, sunken head and bony brow, living in almost inaccessible places. Pliny located it in North Africa. But the really funny thing is that these allusions, with other pictorial documents that reflect, date from long before 1856, when the first fossils of these giants in the vicinity of Neander (Germany) were discovered. Yeti or abominable snow-man could be a cryptic hominid interpreted as a giant ape related with Bigfoot from the US, the Yowie in Australia, and Kunk in the Andes. Given the total lack of evidence, it only there are stories that describe it as a giant bipedal ape is believed located in forested areas of the Himalayas.

The Yeren
Also called Yiren, Ren Yeh, Chinese Wild Man or ape-man, literally “Bear Man,” is a legendary creature that is said could be an unknown hominid that resides in remote forested mountainous regions of western Hubei. In North America, it is known as Sasquatch or Bigfoot. In China, it is called Yeren. Dozens of scientists from institutions of higher learning in China have studied Yeren tests. Some have said that Yeren is a giant ape who is believed extinct long ago, perhaps extinguished up to 8 million years ago, known as Gigantopithecus, whose fossils have found in China and Southeast Asia. It is difficult to say much of the jaw bones and teeth, the only remains found of the creature, but would have been about 9 feet tall, weighing almost half a ton. Most sightings Yeren to describe him as a creature from about 5-7 feet (1.52 m. To 2.13 m.) High.

Refers to one of two Australian mythical creatures. The name is considered in cryptozoology, analogous to American Bigfoot, the Yeti of the Himalayas and the Andes Kunk. It looks like a terrible monkey. In Australian Aboriginal mythology the Yowie is described as a giant beast, resembling a cross between a lizard and an ant. It appears in the field at night to eat what is, even men. According to some researchers, Himalyas are not the only region that is home to Bigfoot. Hundreds of sightings that occurred in Australia since the eighteenth century seem to indicate that as the Yeti wanders through the frozen mountains of India, the Yowie seems to do it by ocean plains. According to the Australian naturalist Rex Gilroy, the town where most sightings have been made is Blue Mountain, located west of Sydney, where at least three thousand people have reported seeing a giant ape, hairy and larger than a bear wandering around this region.
