Bigfoot is a humanlike creature said to live mainly in the forests and mountains of the Pacific Northwest region of North America. This includes northern California, Oregon, Washington State and British Colombia in Canada. Canadians call it Sasquatch.

Hundreds of people have reported seeing the bigfoot or its footprints. They describe the creature as standing from 1.9 to 2.7 meters tall and weighing from 230 to 360 kilograms.

Like an ape, it has thick dark brown or dark reddish fur, long arms, broad, powerful shoulders, and a short neck.

It supposedly walks like a human being and leaves human-shaped footprints that measure as up to 60 centimetres long and 20 centimetres wide.

Evidence of the bigfoot’s existence has not been sufficient to convince most scientists. Many experts believe that some of the evidence, which includes footprints and photographs, has been faked.

Bigfoot stories resemble those in other parts of the world including Australia, China, Indonesia and Russia. Perhaps the best known is the Abominable Snowman, or Yeti, a hairy beast said to live in the Himalayas.
