Like the Comodo-dragon is smaller than it’s Australian cousin.It seems the Orangutan is giganto’s little reletive,wich would explain how this great Ape travelled so far from Africa.It would also explain why the Sydney Funnel-web’s vennom is toxic to Primates.
These apes are real I have seen six of them! I have camped in tents for many weeks and moths year round looking for these creatures. I have been all over the USA in about every state. I often go out on expeditions in search of this animal. E-mail me if you are close to the Charleston, W.V. area and would like to search with me on a future outing, firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, this is based on real fossils. However, it should be noted that:
a) the available fossils are very incomplete, so much of the appearance is conjectural;
b) these fossils are extremely rare, suggesting the animal was never common;
c) the most recent known fossils are 300,000 years old, so it became extinct 100,000 years before the appearance of modern man’s species (Homo sapiens). This makes it extremely unlikely that it inspired legends of Bigfoot; and
d) although many aboriginal tribes of America had legends of wild forest men (as indeed did other peoples around the world), it is *not* true, as is often claimed, that these legends were of gigantic fur covered hominids. The sasquatch “legend” was largely made up in the 1920s by author J.W. Burns. Some aboriginal tribes had legends of furry wild men — but they were tiny dwarves, not giants. Some tribes had legends of gigantic cannibal wild men — but they looked just like men, they weren’t covered in shaggy fur. Burns just mixed all the stories together and made up an Injun’ sounding name for it. Yeah, that’s right, “sasquatch” isn’t even a real aboriginal word.
Plains Indians encountered human giants – cannibals. Giant apes are another category altogether. Go back farther into history than 1900- read Buffalo Bill’s biography. See the bones found in museums all over america. and go hunting with the chap above 🙂
