The Yeti is a mysterious bipedal creature said to live in the mountains of Asia. It sometimes leaves tracks in snow, but is also said to dwell below the Himalayan snow line. Despite dozens of expeditions into the remote mountain regions of Russia, China, and Nepal, the existence of the Yeti remains unproven. The Yeti is said to be muscular, covered with dark grayish or reddish-brown hair, and weigh between 200 and 400 pounds. It is relatively short compared to North America's Bigfoot, averaging about 6 feet in height. Though this is the most common form, reported Yetis have come in a variety of shapes.
According to Nepal's folklore, the yeti is an ape that is like an eternity taller but mostly the same height of an average human. They inhabit the Himalyaian mountains. This creature has large canine teeth, huge feet, and it's entire body is covered with white to dark gray fur. This creature can only be seen when descending from the peak of the moutanin, when in search of food. Stories about the yeti dates back to thousands of years. This animal diet ranges from animals that can be found roaming around in the forest, particularly yaks, and sometimes humans. The first public report of a Yeti came from a German photographer in 1925, but many other hikers and Nepalese claim to have seen this creature wandering around. This creature can be described as deadly or a creature that only come out to feed.
The word yeti comes from a compound of Tibetan words that translates to “man-bear” or “cattle bear”. A British Genetics professor has claimed to have solved the riddle of the yeti a few years ago. The creature is explained to be a sub-species of the brown bear, more specifically a mix between the Himalayan brown bear and an ancient polar bear species. Yeti sightings have occurred as recently as 2008, when a team of Japanese mountain climbers photographed large strange footprints on Mt. Everest. The yeti has been called the “guardian” of the Himalayan Mountains by several of the natives who have become protective of this giant. Many natives consider the yeti a divine being, and they don’t like it when cynics question its existence. Yetis are nocturnal animals (a nocturnal animal means it sleeps during the day and does their moving about and hunting at night).
The search to find the Yeti can be traced back to the time of Alexander the Great, who in 326 BC set out to conquer the Indus Valley. Having heard stories of the Yeti he demanded to see one for himself, but local people told him they were unable to present one because the creatures could not survive at that low an altitude.
