Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, or whatever you call it, is a hairy ape found in North American forests. Standing around 8; tall, Bigfoot sightings point to Bigfoot being an actual animal and not a hoax. But, if Bigfoot does exist, what is it?
Described as a large ape, Bigfoot could be several different creatures. One possibility is the gigantopithicus. Gigantopithicus was the largest ape ever. Standing over 9′ tall and being very furry, gigantopithicus fits the description of Bigfoot perfectly. It lived from 9 million to 11,000 years ago in Eastern Asia and North America, where many Bigfoot and Yeti (Bigfoot’s cousin), sightings come from. However, gigantopithicus was a vegetarian, while Bigfoot is most likely an omnivore, eating both plants and meat. 11,000 years is still enough time for a gigantoithicus to eat some meat.
Another possibility is that Bigfoot is an alien. Various sightings involving Bigfoots going towards or coming from flying saucers and space ships points to Bigfoots maybe coming from distant galaxies. It is possible that a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away, Wookies from the planet Kashyyyk decided to migrate to Earth after Order 66 was executed (sorry I just went full nerd on y’alls). But is it very likely that Bigfoots could have came from other planets.
And lastly, Bigfoot could just be a gigantic hoax. People could dress up, fake tracks, and totally prank the public. Why people would do this, maybe for their entertainment.
