The Bigfoot or Sasquatch (which is the its Indian name used in the province of British Columbia in Canada) is massive, about 6 to 9 feet (1.8 to 2.4 metres) tall and weighs between 600 to 900 pounds. It has dark, reddish black hair which covers its whole body, except for parts of its face, its nipples, the palms of its hands, and the soles of its feet. Its head is so low it looks neckless, and her forehead slants back from her eyebrows to a high spot at the back of her head, like that of the crested, immense skull of a gorilla. It has bulky arms and very strong legs.
This creature is said to be found in the forests of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States and in Canada.
Reports of the Bigfoot have dated to as far back as the 1830s. The first Sasquatch sighting by a white man was apparently in 1811. They have been linked to UFOs.
Sightings of Bigfoot are so often in the headlines that similar sightings in other parts of the world have been overlooked.
Sightings are mostly reported in secluded, greatly forested places. Zoologists say that if there was something as big as the Bigfoot or Sasquatch, satellites would certainly have picked them up. In addition, no corpse has ever been found.
This is a still from the only film of Bigfoot taken at Bluff Creek, California, 1967. It has not been proven to be true or false.
