On the hunt for the skunk ape

Some call them Bigfoot and others may refer to them as Sasquatch but here in Florida we call them skunk apes. Usually believed to be around 6.FT tall and could weigh as much as 350 pounds and perhaps even more. It is widely believed that these furry and man like apes roam freely in Florida's swamps and wetlands, with the most famous sightings being in and around the Florida everglades.


After researching and studying eyewitness accounts of south Florida skunk ape sightings, paranormal researchers from North Florida Mystery Trackers geared up and headed south for a 24 hour skunk ape expedition in the back woods of Ochopee, FL in hopes of having a 1% chance of getting a glimpse of this mysterious creature.


A group of four camped out in one of Florida's most well known skunk ape hot spots. After setting up camp we begin to take scenic drives through the woods and swamps looking up, down and side by side for anything that might resemble any of the eye witness accounts that our team researched and studied weeks prior to the expedition. When we do expeditions like these, it's a lot different than our ghost investigations. During those we have a lot more equipment we use. When we go looking for Skunk Apes we are usually just going based on eyewitness accounts and research. Here is one thing that we know as a fact. There is a lot of swamp land in Florida and skunk ape sightings have been reported throughout the entire state and even in Georgia.



We planned our expedition around South Florida's wet season to avoid a high number of human interaction with other visors, little did we know we would have the entire deep woods camp to ourselves. When researching or investigating skunk ape sightings it's best to have as little people around as possible. Just about all wild animals avoid areas with high human activity, this would most likely be the case with any unknown animals or creatures as well. Sightings of the Florida skunk ape are extremely rare and are mostly only reported in swamps or deep forests. During our overnight visit to west everglades we didn't see or hear anything that matched up to the eye witness accounts, but it was a very exciting time nonetheless. We are currently making plans for a central Florida skunk ape expedition.
