Considering there is no concrete proof or scientific evidence that Yeti exist, we do still love to hear about them.
So what do we know?
- The Yeti, is also known as the abominable snowman and lives in the Himalayan region of Nepal.
- Believed to be nocturnal, it whistles and growls and has a knock-out punch.
- The first sighting was by a German photographer in 1925. Sadly he forgot to remove the lens cap.
- Sir Edmund Hilary is said to have seen giant footprints when climbing Everest. Credible!
- In 2008, Japanese adventurers also found unexplained footprints. Bandwagon?
- In 2016, reports of an Oriental Yeti spotted in woodlands emerged. On holiday perhaps?
- The Yeti has a large family spread across the globe. Almas in Mongolia; Batutut in Vietnam; Bigfoot in North America; Sasquatch in Canada; Yowie in Australia; Skunk Ape in Florida and even the Fear Liath in bonny Scotland. Wow!
- Yeti is a Tibetan word, yeh-teh, meaning Rock Bear. Makes sense.
- Descriptions describe him as being 6ft 10’ tall and covered in white fluffy fur. Wouldn’t want to bump into him at night!
- It is said by Sherpas that the Yeti can only be seen by those who believe. Well I’m convinced, I wonder if they have a tee in a medium?
