#2-Abominable Snowman

The Abominable Snowman

The Abominable Snowman, a superhuman or ape-like creature, supposedly lives in the Himalayas, a mountain range in Asia that goes from Tibet all the way to India.

In Tibetan, they call this mythical monster Yeti (which comes from words that mean rocky place bear). But no one has found any good evidence that the Yeti exists. There are no photos, only some footprints in the snow that probably, IMO (in my opinion), came from some other animal or were put there to fool you and me and everyone else.

But I guess people like to be scared. That’s probably why there are made-up creatures like the Abominable Snowman…and films like The Abominable Snowman of the Himalayas. (It was made in 1957…and it looks like a really cheesy movie, if you know what I mean!)

In North America, there is a similar legend about a creature called Sasquatch or Big Foot. Canada put Sasquatch on a stamp in 1990. But there is no really convincing evidence about this guy, either.

Do you think I’m wrong? Do you think these hairy humanoid creatures actually exist?

If you know anything or have an opinion about the Abominable Snowman, Yeti, Sasquatch or Big Foot, please tell me. I want to know what other kids think.

    • Except there’s no such thing as a Bigfoot, so how can there be dermal ridges on something that doesn’t exist?

  1. I honestly think there is such thing as a bifoot or yeti. (Abonimable Snowman) Because of this TV show I used to watch. It proved that the bigfoot was real, by showing many video recordings of one and many footprints of one.
