Idaho Students capture video of Bigfoot

Some high school students in Idaho captured a dark creature on film fleeting into the woods and many believe it may be Bigfoot. The students were out on a school project on Mint Creek south of Pocatello when they noticed the mysterious dark figure watching them from a ridge. A student then grabbed his camera and was able to get a glimpse of the creature. The students were also able to climb the ridge where the creature was seen and photograph some footprints left behind.

Jeff Meldrum a well known Bigfoot expert and University professor examined the video of the creature. Meldrum said :

“It nevertheless is a large dark figure that bears a striking resemblance to descriptions of Sasquatch,”

Finding Bigfoot team has announced it will be heading to Pocatello, Idaho sometime in June to investigate the sighting and evidence. In the video you can vaguely see movement in the trees. If you look at it just right you can see a giant, dark figure towering like a flagpole moving about as it disappears into the woods.

How to Learn More about Cryptozoology

Cryptozoology is the study of unknown animals. Most people have not heard about this science, but you indirectly know about from media coverage of such entities as the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot. While many “traditional” scientists have criticized cryptozoology for lacking a uniform scientific method for the study of unknown animals, cryptozoology has gained in prominence as the number of sightings and discoveries of previously unknown animals has increased. Here are ways to learn more about cryptozoology.

Education

In order to best understand cryptozoology, it is best to study zoology or biology at a college or university. Since crytozoologists study undocumented animals, it is important to gain knowledge and understand of the elements that govern animals in general, such as animal behavior, population dynamics, and ecosystems or population niche. Also, some colleges and online programs offer specific courses in cryptology. For more information, click here. In a cryptology course, you will learn about such things as research techniques, case studies of specific animals, and outlook for the cryptology field.

Internet Resources

There are many different websites devoted to the field of cryptozoology. This includes Cryptozoology.com, NewAnimal.org, and MysteriousUniverse.org. These offer useful information on such things as an overall breakdown of the field cryptozoology, descriptions of reported unknown animals, field and laboratory techniques, guidelines for becoming a cryptozoologists, and community forums.

Cryptozoologists

One of the best ways to learn more about cryptozoology is to learn from professional cryptozoologists. One of the most famous cryptozoologists is Bernard Heuvelmans, who was a pioneer in cryptozoology and wrote the book “On the Track of Unknown Animals.” He was notable for helping establish cryptozoology as science, where previously cryptozoology was treated as folklore or mythology. 

Finding Bigfoot crew obtains audio proof of the Yowie in Australia

Finding Bigfoot Crew

The crew of Finding Bigfoot was recently in Australia in search of the Yowie. The Yowie is the name given to the Australia’s Bigfoot. The Finding Bigfoot team claims that they have been able to obtain some very compelling audio recordings of the Yowie. The crew were on an expedition through the forest area’s of the Queensland and NSW border when they reportedly came across Yowie evidence. Could the renowned Bigfoot hunters which include Cliff Barackman , Matt Moneymaker, Ranae Holland, and James Fay have found proof that the Yowie is alive and roaming in the Outback.

Finding Bigfoot cast member James “Bobo” Fay said that this expedition may be the best as far as audio recordings that the team has ever had. Fay said in two separate locations they were found activity that is directly attributed to the Yowie. Here are some more Bobo quotes on the new Yowie evidence found by Finding Bigfoot team.

“We got some really compelling audio,” he said.

“It is not a known species, I can tell you that. One of the details (convinces us) there is nothing else it could have been.”

Fay is still “stoked” with having captured the Australian yowie sound on tape.

“When at first we all heard it, we were like, ‘No way’,” he recalls.

“If you were in North America, you could have written off one of the compelling things we heard as being a large bear. But there are no large bears here.”

This new Yowie evidence is set be aired as part of Finding Bigfoot Season 3 which will of course be shown on Animal Planet.

Bigfoot or Yeti Hair Samples Wanted

New techniques being used to analyze DNA could be a key to cracking the mystery of the existence of Bigfoot says European researchers. Scientist from Oxford University and Lausanne Museum of Zoology are appealing to scientist , museums, cryptozoologist, and crypto aficinados for any Bigfoot or Yeti hair samples or other types of samples they may have associated with the creature. Researchers are planning to focus on hair samples to determine the species the samples originated from. The project is called Oxford-Lausanne Collateral Hominid Project.

Oxford Universities Bryan Sykes said the research group has already received samples which include hair , blood, and some items which were supposedly chewed by a Bigfoot to test. Sykes said there is already some evidence that already exist of interbreeding between Neanderthals and homo sapiens which may play a part in the creature known as the Yeti’s origins. There is a hypothesis which suggest the Yeti may be surviving Neanderthals.

Sykes admits that the chances of proving a new Yeti species or that Bigfoot exist is low but we will never find out if we don’t look.

New Finding Skunk Ape show coming to Travel Channel

“Shealy at his location in the Everglades”


Travel channel has given the green light for a new show featuring David Shealy and his search for the Skunk Ape. The focus on the show will be Shealy’s search through the Florida Everglades for the elusive Bigfoot like creature known as the Skunk Ape. If the pilots ratings are strong in its initial ratings a half a dozen more episodes will be scheduled.

The huge success of Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot featuring Matt Moneymaker and his crew from the BFRO has Travel Channel trying to hit its own Bigfoot home run. Shealy’s “Finding Skunk Ape” type series is set to air next fall. The show may have an even funnier aspect to it then Finding Bigfoot as some people have questioned Shealy’s methods and alleged findings.

Many Bigfoot researchers and Cryptozoologist and worried that these new trend of shows are being developed and played simply for laughs. These types of shows may prove to be TV gold but they may lead to the serious side of Cryptozoology and its researchers suffering some from the negative exposure.
