Cool video. I also have no idea what is in the picture. To me it looks like 3 things of similar color set together. With a picture taken at a angle that makes it look like a deformed gorilla. To me the thing the person is trying to make a arm looks nothing like one and would have to be severely deformed to be an arm.

It looks to me like a 'humanoid shape' sitting like the video suggests and either another one in front of it, or an adolescent, I think its 2 creatures, close together.


The head looks more gorilla than sasquatch though, not sure what to make of that.

The video starts off trying to prove the Patterson film which you already know many of us dispute. Then it shows us a still photograph and that could be taken anywhere, even in a zoo. It could have been put together for a photograph; we know nothing about the picture other than then narrator wants us to believe that it could only be one thing - Big Foot.

Why did not photographer not snap another picture to try to probe it was alive or that it could move?

Ive asked you before what you would consider to be proof...you said pictures would be a start...but, here we have a picture, and now you want another picture....lets say the guy did take another picture and it looked similar to this one...would that change your opinion in anyway, or would you still doubt?


I hope Im able to get some good pics or video come springtime!

I hope you are able to also!

In this picture we cannot even see the face; not that it makes any difference. Movement helps because we can analyze the movement and compare it with other known animals. All of this is only a start to proving the existence of something that has not been proven.

Like I said with my experience the two of us saw the mountain lion only 20 yards away. It was the middle of a bright sunny day. We were chasing it down the dirt road in my Nissan Frontier at that time - safely inside the vehicle. The speed amazed me because I did look at my speedometer and I clocked it at 35 mph. That is awful fast on a dirt road for a pickup; let alone a 'creature'! But to the people that matter; that is not proof. Two or maybe dozens of witnesses could not prove the existence of something that officially does not exist.

No definitive proof, but the Patterson film, now 50+ y/o, is more likely than not a hoax. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Patterson–Gimlin_film


The still photo looks remarkably like the sasquatch in Harry and The Hendersons. What a coincidence.

It was a hoax. See: https://video.nationalgeographic.com...c-7b3f24c90000

Did Patterson or Gimlin ever admit it was a hoax? No. Has someone invented a time machine to go back in time and prove they faked it? No.

But Bob Heironymous has come out and said he was the man in suit. See video above. Anthropologists who have analyzed the film say it's a fake. Wildlife biologists who have analyzed the film say it's a fake. Movie special effects artist not only scream that it's a fake, but they point out that it isn't even a very good fake.

Think about this for a minute...if there was an effort to hide the existence of this creature, wouldnt it make perfect sense to 'debunk' a very clear video of one walking?


Everything I have read on it, points to it being legit, People that work in Hollywood and with animatronics,(spelling?), say it would have been impossible to create such a realistic suit at the time, plus, you can see the muscles ripple and tense as it walks, heck, you can even see a hernia on the backside!



The 'walking gait' has been studied numerous times, and they have tried all sorts of different body types to replicate the gait and none can do it.

The only thing I can think of to explain it would be wild gorillas.


Im not sure if there are any wild gorillas in the US, but I guess its possible.
