What You Need to Know about Sasquatch

Alternately called Bigfoot, Sasquatch is a legendary hairy beast thought to be living in the forests of North America, along the Northwest Pacific area. This mysterious creature is a cross between human and ape. It stands approximately seven to ten feet tall, weighs around 200 kilos and has 17-inch footprints. Whether or not Sasquatch exists has been a hotly debated topic for a long time now. While many people believe the creature is as mythical as the Loch Ness monster and chupacabra, there has been a number of research-based pieces of evidence supporting the likely existence of Sasquatch.

Sasquatch documentation dates back to several centuries ago. The Native American Indians regarded Sasquatch as a sacred being that protected the forests. In the 18th century, three furry "giants" ran amok in England but further documentation about the incident was lost in the 1900s. Russia added Sasquatch to its list of endangered species in 1965. Two years later, France and Germany also declared the creature as endangered.
Early in 2013, a Texas veterinarian and her research team were able to unearth DNA allegedly belonging to a Sasquatch. Unfortunately, skeptics continued to brush off possible evidence related to the creature's existence. The results were never published in any science journal. Ketchum was not the only person who discovered details about Bigfoot. In 2000, remains of a 9 feet, 6 inch creature were found in Klamath, Oregon. If the remains were proven to belong to a "human," he would have been the tallest man on earth.

Different researchers provided conflicting evidence on Bigfoot's appearance, eating habits and behavioral quirks. Some researchers argue that Bigfoot is more ape than man, while others assert it is more similar to a human. A group of scientists found data that the creature is vegetarian, but another research claim that Bigfoot is a carnivore and prefers to eat meat. Bigfoot researchers also believe that Bigfoot is incapable of sneezing and can run fast at a speed of 35 mph. Despite the contradiction, this growing list of evidence suggests that the scientific community is gradually opening its doors to Bigfoot research.
