This Legendary Cryptid From Sumatra Most Likely Exists

This Legendary Cryptid From Sumatra Most Likely Exists 94

In the westernmost island of the archipelago in Indonesia is a jungle that is home to the most elusive Crytpid in the world, the Orang Pendek. The animal is said to be a cryptozoological wonder and is a bipedal primate that is small which has been seen by natives to the island along with researchers. This elusive animal may have been recently caught on video as proof of what is often called the miniature Bigfoot of Asia.

Evidence of The World’s Most Elusive Crytpid, The Orang Pendek

Orang Pendek Means Short Person

Orang Pendek translates to the short person in Indonesia and it is a primate species that has remained undiscovered and which might be from the homo genus. Locals, travelers, and researchers have over the years claimed to have seen the cryptid, many saying that they came across it purely by chance.

One thing that everyone who claims to have seen the Orang Pendek has said is that the animal is between 30 to 60 inches tall and covered in grey, brown or golden hair and is bipedal. This means the creature walks upright in the same way that a human being walks. What is even stranger about the creature is the fact that its facial features resemble those of a human being and differ totally from the majority of monkeys.

Is Orang Pendek The Lost Cousin of Human Beings?

Due to the creature having the facial looks of a human being the creature has been said to be the lost cousin of humans and it shares a common ancestor. A research group did come across the remains of human-like species in the region and it was small and they reported it as being Homo floresiensis, the real-life Hobbit. Many have said that this is the cryptid of Sumatra.

The Indonesia people have said that the Orang Pendek is a creature that shows great intelligence and it has the ability to be able to hide away from human beings. This has caused the people of Sumatra to be in fear of the creature. One native claimed an encounter with the creature and said that the animal had put its arms up into the air so as to make itself look bigger. Others have claimed of sightings that have been similar and of the creature showing aggression. It is not known if the creature has actually ever attacked anyone.

British Journalist Saw Orang Pendek in Jungle in Sumatra

British journalist, Debbie Martyr, is among the most famous of researchers who claimed to have seen the creature. In 1994 she said that she was out investigating and saw the Orang Pendek in the Sumatran jungle. While she was not able to capture the creature in a photo, she said that what she had witnessed was a bipedal primate that was unlike anything she had seen before.

The crew of a military helicopter also claimed to have seen the creature when the helicopter was flying over Kerinci Seblat National Park, which has been the center of the sightings of the Orang Pendek. It was said that the creature was in a tree, and it has a head that was a different shape to a human, more like an ape but the face was humanoid.

Video Evidence of the Orang Pendek

While there have been photographs of the Orang Pendek, there is one video film that has stood out above all else as being proof of the Orang Pendek. In the video, a small pygmy like creature is seen darting out of the woodland right in front of dirt-bikers. The creature takes off into the jungle, as one of the bikers tries to catch up with it. The creature is caught on film for only a few seconds.

The creature is seen to fall over, and then it picks up a long staff and runs off, it is thought to be wearing a loincloth. It was the size of a small human being, but the actual height is said to be difficult to judge because of the angles of the footage captured. The creature does seem to have less hair than what has been described by other people claiming to have seen the Orang Pendek, and this is one of the reasons some have said that the video was a hoax.

Researcher Took Cast of Footprint of Orang Pendek

Englishman Adam Davies is another researcher who has been tracking down the Orang Pendek. Davies claims that he made a cast of what is the footprint of the creature in the jungle in western Sumatra. He found that the cast did match up with descriptions that the Orang Pendek has a divergent toe like a monkey. However, there is a difference in the toes are not quite as long as monkeys. Instead they are wide and short the same as found on human beings.

This Legendary Cryptid From Sumatra Most Likely Exists 98

Richard Freeman has been exploring regions such as western Sumatra for many years taking photographs. He said that he had taken photographs of about 60 species that have never been seen before and this means that there is a high possibility that there are an unknown species of primate in existence. Cynics have said that the sightings of the creature were in fact orangutans. There have been many confounding factors that go towards dispelling the skepticism, with the main issue being that orangutans have not been seen in that region of Sumatra.

It was also said that Orangutans use their arms and knuckles to balance with while walking and they do not walk fully upright. Many people have claimed that the Orang Pendek walks upright and strides out. While the Orang Pendek remains something of a mystery right now, researchers believe that they will find concrete evidence of the existence of them.

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot

Scientist finds polar bear DNA in Bigfoot 101

British scientists examined yeti DNA and found a strong similarity to polar bear DNA. For analysis, they took the wool of a creature that was killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago.

Brian Sykes, a geneticist at the University of Oxford, examined the DNA of the Bigfoot Yeti and found similarities to the DNA of a polar bear, according to Daily Star.

For analysis, Sykes took the wool of a creature killed by a hunter in the Himalayas 30 years ago, from which they made a stuffed animal. The result showed a match with the DNA of an ancient polar bear that became extinct at least 40,000 years ago. The geneticist suggests that the Yeti is a hybrid of a brown bear and a polar bear that arrived in the mountain range from the Arctic north many years ago. For this reason, it behaves differently from an animal of this species.

Now the professor wants to obtain samples of Bigfoot hair from all over the world in order to subject them to the most difficult DNA tests and continue research in this direction.

In 2019, the FBI released documents revealing the results of analysis of hair and biologic tissue allegedly belonging to Bigfoot. The samples were sent in 1976 by yeti hunter Peter Byrne. Research results showed that they belonged to a deer.

Bigfoot is a large humanoid creature from modern folklore, which is believed to live in forest or mountain areas that are inaccessible to humans. It is believed that it is an ancient hominid that has survived to our time, but scientists are skeptical about the likelihood of its existence. In particular, all cases of its observation or possible traces are explained by hoax or mistaken recognition of animal tracks.

When was the last time a Bigfoot was seen?

In 2020, the appearance of Bigfoot was noted in Australia, the relic forests of Canada, in the west of the USA, in the north of Scandinavia.

In the spurs of the Himalayas, wild hairy people of small stature were seen, resembling a Flores man (fossil dwarf species of people. Also known as the “hobbit” by analogy with the creatures invented by J. Tolkien. – Ed.).

In October, locals informed that in the jungle of Africa, in the Congo region, there is an upright creature similar to a Yeti.

Traces of Bigfoot, his refuge are regularly found in Komi. Yeti visits have recently been reported from eyewitnesses from the Karelian Isthmus and the border zone near Vyborg, where there are dungeons and a huge bunker near an abandoned military airfield.

Inverness, December 23. A new photograph of a mysterious creature “the size of a very large seal” in Loch Ness has been announced as another official sighting of the Loch Ness monster.

Tourist Karen Scott, returning from Aberdeen, noticed a strange creature in the Scottish Loch Ness. The woman managed to capture her observation in the photo. At first, Scott took what he saw for a big bird, she admitted to reporters. According to the traveler, while she took out the camera, the mysterious creature managed to submerge itself under the water.

“By the time I turned on the camera on my phone, it was slowly submerged under the water and then reappeared at a short distance,” she shared.

Scott and her friend compared the creature they saw to a large seal, but workers at the lake have denied this assumption. According to experts, seals rarely get that far into Loch Ness.

The tourist flow to these places in 2020 was much lower than in previous years due to the coronavirus pandemic, experts studying Nessie noted. Despite this circumstance, during this year, travelers recorded a large amount of evidence of the existence of the Loch Ness monster, scientists were surprised.

In Africa, some tribes still believe in the existence of a dinosaur on the Congo River

In Africa, some tribes still believe in the existence of a dinosaur on the Congo River 104

There are already a great many cryptids in our world. But at the same time, we do not have any evidence of their real existence, except for legends and eyewitness accounts. Of course the ocean is still a very unexplored sphere of the Earth. There may indeed be some prehistoric cryptids preserved there. For example, there is one horseshoe crab, which is almost 500 million years old. 

But in Africa there has long been a belief about a certain Mokele-Mbemba, who lives in the Congo basin. This legend confuses scientists. If the most ancient creatures can still be preserved in the ocean, then they could hardly remain on Earth, especially when it comes to dinosaurs.

Judging by African beliefs, dinosaurs on Earth are not yet extinct?

However, judging by the descriptions of local residents, either some sauropod from the Jurassic period or a real plesiosaur lives in the Congo. It is not known exactly who it is about. The appearance of this creature, described by eyewitnesses from Africa, often resembles the Loch Ness monster. 

Mokele-mbemba is credited with a long neck, a raptor’s head and aggressive predatory behavior. According to some tribes, a mysterious dinosaur can hunt hippos that are afraid of him and go away. According to other sources, he is a herbivore. No matter how many expeditions were organized to the Congo to search for this creature, not one of them was crowned with success. None of the naturalists have come across a mokele mbembe. This sometimes gives the impression that this creature is just a product of the mythology of local residents.

In 2001, the BBC and Discovery Channel filmed an entire movie dedicated to the search for the mysterious Mokele Mbembe. From conversations with representatives of tribes, experts found out that the mysterious creature could be …. A common rhino. 

The fact is that there are practically no rhinos in the Congo basin. Local peoples are usually not fond of distant travel. But rhinos could well have lived in these lands centuries ago. From all this, naturalists concluded that by mokele-mbembe they mean any of the African rhinos. 

Moreover, when one of the experts showed the local a photograph of a rhinoceros, they replied that it was the same mythical monster. Therefore, scientists thought that the legend was created by those who personally saw these giant pig-like animals in distant times. In addition, the mysterious traces of mokele-mbembe,

Judging by African beliefs, dinosaurs on Earth are not yet extinct?

True, it is worth considering the opinion of cryptozoologists who are looking for outlandish creatures on Earth. Over a century of this entire cryptozoological campaign, researchers talked to many locals in the Congo and received very mixed information. 

Some Africans said that the mokele-mbembe has a very long neck, more characteristic of a dinosaur, as well as the existing scales. Moreover, there was information about the carnivorousness of this beast. In this case, this animal can no longer be equated with a rhinoceros. Almost nowhere was it reported that the beast had a giant horn.

 A biologist named Roy McCull undertook two expeditions to find the mokele-mbembe and failed. But he is still sure that the mysterious creature is not a rhino at all, but a real sauropod that has survived to this day. 

McCull strongly disagrees that the mokele-mbembe could be a mammal or an amphibian. But the official science does not recognize the existence of surviving dinosaurs at all, and calls the legend of the African “dinosaur” an ordinary fantasy
