The Legends of Bigfoot, Sasquatch & the Yeti - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 1 Star Rating)

There have been sightings of the hairy creatures for hundreds of years, so Kidzworld is taking a look at the legend of Bigfoot, the Sasquatch and the Yeti.

He's tall, he's hairy and you don't want to run into him at night. No, it's not your dad going for a midnight snack. He's known by many unique names, with the ones used most often being Bigfoot, Sasquatch and Yeti. This creature has been a mystery of the woods for hundreds of years. But does he really exist?

Though the name of the beast has changed from place to place, it is clear that all the legends share the same fundamental characteristics. It's known as the Yeti or Abominable Snowman in the Asian mountain range of the Himalayas, Bigfoot in the American Northwest and the Sasquatch in Canada. There have been recorded sightings of this creature all over the world for hundreds of years.

It is said to forage for food at night and sleep during the day. This nocturnal beast stands between seven and eight feet tall and can weigh over 450 lbs. (200 kg.) Most people who have encountered Bigfoot or his counterparts have described the creature as being half-man/half-ape, with dark, long fur all over its body. Of course, no one is ruling out a female Bigfoot. Many people have reported seeing whole Sasquatch families. There have also been Bigfoot and Sasquatch encounters where the hairy creature is described as being all white, and the Himalayan species of Yeti is often said to be white.

The legend of Bigfoot is so popular around the world that there have been several Bigfoot-inspired characters in Hollywood films:

  • Sully from Disney's Monster's Inc. isn't your typical Bigfoot, but he could surely be a distant cousin!
  • Harry from Harry and the Hendersons, a 1987 movie starring Third Rock from the Sun star, John Lithgow.
  • The Fouke Monster of the 1972 documentary-style thriller, The Legend of Boggy Creek.
  • Who could forget the Abominable Snowman from the animated classic Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer?

1 Frist of all, I think that Bigfoot is real. Why else would they know what Bigfoot looked like? I think that Bigfoot is 100% REAL.

1 Of course the "Yeti" is real. Why? Because there is evidence that proves it is real. But I'm confirmed there are different species of Yeti all over the world. And it just might be one of our ancestors, since it's half ape/half human!

1 I don't believe in the legend of Bigfoot. I'm 100% behind my feelings. I mean, do you really think that a big hairy monster is out there? Please!

1 I so think Big foot is real. I mean there's lots of things that people believe in and they have never seen it/person. So, why is there no such thing as a big foot? Also, how would any one know what big foot looks like? I think big foot is 100% real.

1 I think there is a bigfoot! Hey, there is evidence that bigfoot exists! Evidence like pictures, testimonies and even videos! And you can't say that there's no such thing as a bigfoot because we have not discovered all the creatures here on this big Earth! Am I right or am I right?
