Description:

For years, scientists and researchers have searched for Bigfoot, an elusive primate that has been sighted throughout Canada and the Northwestern United States. The earliest recorded sightings of Bigfoot were by Native Americans, who named it Sasquatch ("hairy man"). The Sasquatch is thought to be related to the Yeti of Nepal, and more distantly related to the great apes and other large primates.

Very little is known about these animals. Studies of their tracks lead scientists to believe that most have two to six toes on large feet. Each footprint measures over fifteen inches long. Unlike the great apes, which are quadrupeds, the Sasquatch is bipedal. Standing about twelve feet tall, these large and heavy creatures leave deep tracks as they travel through the woods.

Although humanlike, there are many physiological differences between a Sasquatch and a human. Besides standing much taller, the chest of the Sasquatch is proportionally larger than that of a human, while the head is proportionally smaller. The entire body is covered by a thick, coarse hair.

The Sasquatch is notoriously shy, and few prior observations have been made. The most famous observation was by Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin in 1967. While on an assignment to film habitat known to be frequented by a Bigfoot, these photographers managed to record several minutes of film as a female of the species ran in front of their horses and across a clearing. Still photos have been recorded by other observers as well, including a well known series of photos taken by a park ranger in the Mount Rainier foothills. Sound recordings exist as well, demonstrating that sasquatches communicate using a series of growls, howls and grunts to alert each other to danger.

Unfortunately, many skeptics choose to believe that Bigfoot is a hoax. Although footprints and films can be faked, an exhibit at your zoo will convince the world, for once and for all, that Bigfoot lives.
