Zig Forums what’s the best way to hunt down the four types of Bigfoot’s we know of so far?
Type 1 bigfoot, A.K.A. The Patty-type.
This is the classic Sasquatch. It looks like a cross between a human and a Mountain gorilla. (mountain gorilla) It has a large, powerful build a thick, broad chest, black hair, and gray skin. Other hair colors reported are brown, auburn, cinnamon, and occasionally white. The head, though massive, has been described as relatively small for the body. Type 1s sometimes develop a sagittal crest which can look like a person wearing a hoodie. They have a conspicuous brow ridge with a receding forehead, giving the eyes a deep-set look. The eyes are hard to see, but have been reported to be proportionately further apart than a human's eyes. Type 1s have a flat face with prominent cheekbones and a square jaw. The mouth region is only slightly protuberant. The nose is near human in shape, though "pug" or flat, sometimes with forward directed nostrils. The height average for the sampled population is 7’ 10, however, alpha males have been reported at 9' and larger. The average Type 1 is estimated to weigh between 500-800 pounds.
type 2 the more ape-like than the Type 1s.
They're reported in many areas of North America, but especially in the South. Type 2s have a bestial man-like build and large eyes with a large pupil dilation for night vision. The hair is most often reported as black, but Auburn, orange, and cinnamon have been reported. A bit smaller than the Type 1s, the Average height is around 7 feet. Type 2s tend to be very territorial and can be aggressive. They seem to kill a lot of livestock, especially the smaller varieties such as goats and chickens. Type 2s leave human-like footprints but can seem very much like known primates, especially chimps, orangutans and Bili apes
Type 3 something like a mandrill/human mix.
They look similar to a bigfoot but more "savage" or primal. Descriptions of the face vary, but the most reports describe a large, dog/bear/baboon-faced, bipedal mammal. Type 3s can be extremely tall (10' report - 15' report) with oversized heads that look more monster-like than ape-like. They tend to live up in the mountains but will come down for food. The fur is typically dark, or deep brown. One witness reported seeing a Type 3 wearing animal pelts over their fur (hear report.) They may eat humans, but reports of man-eating are rare and often based on very old legends. Type 3s tend to incite reports of paranormal characteristics, like having glowing red eyes, or being bulletproof at close range. Check this out: Dogman Encounters Episode 85, an eyewitness (ex-military) goes looking for a bipedal canid, but finds a Type 3, it's a very cool account. "Type 3" is a very recent classification, traditionally these types were called Kukwes, or Gugwes, a kind of man-eating ogre from Mi'kmaq Indian folklore. Check out this interview with Brian "Duke" Sullivan on Sasquatch Chronicles.
Type 4 reports often come from the North/North East.
They have been referred to as Early Man Bigfoot and the American Almas. They are the most human-looking of the hairy bipedal humanoids possessing traits of archaic/prehistoric man. They're typically a bit leaner than the Type 1s, but are still large, and well-muscled. A hairy Homo Heidelbergensis (link) is a decent model for the Type 4. They have less facial hair than the other types. The crown of the head can have thinning hair, or even be bald on top. Some eyewitnesses have reported beards and moustaches ranging from just noticeable to fully grown. Type 4s have round (not conical) heads. Their noses are hooded. The mouth is wider than what we would consider normal. The teeth are square and human-looking. The skin color is pasty gray or black with a leathery appearance. Some people think these are hybrids, part human, part novel primate. They may be, but all members of the genus Homo developed and used tools. There are no reports of Type 4s using tools of any kind. If they are human — even pre-modern — why would they stop creating and using tools?
This paper by Aaron Mills, Gerald Mills, M. N. Townsend is an analysis of tooth marks found on piles of bones in the Mt. St. Helens area. They make an excellent case for the existence of an undiscovered extant Hominin. "The totality of the evidence analysis very conclusively proves that a new “Hominin” species with an estimated height of over 8’8” is currently living and feeding upon various ungulate (Cervidae) species in the immediate vicinity of Mount St. Helen’s."
