The truth is out there. And by “out there” I mean anywhere but the internet. We see hundreds of images flash in front of our eyes every month. But these are the ones you might have seen recently that deserve a second look. Because they’re all fake.
A couple of years ago, a DNA analysis of an ostensible sample of Yeti hair indicated that it may have belonged to a previously undiscovered ancestor of modern bears. A new genetic analysis now refutes this claim.
An unprecedented peer-reviewed genetic survey of more than 30 biological hair samples purportedly left behind by either Bigfoot or the Yeti shows they actually came from creatures considerably less mysterious... such as bears, horses, and cows.
When do you need to tell a prospective buyer your house is haunted? Where do you need a license to practice necromancy or to be reincarnated? And where can you file a lawsuit against a supernatural being? These real-life laws will tell you all that and more.
Aw, shucks. Science goin’ off and ruining everything again for cryptozoologists. The latest blow comes from a UK geneticist who says hair samples from an alleged Yeti, or Abominable Snowman, actually came from another — albeit real — creature from the north: an ancient hybrid between polar bears and brown bears.
During the 1950s, oil magnate, adventurer, and cryptozoologist Tom Slick traveled through the Himalayas searching for evidence that a Yeti. Slick was obsessed with searching for cryptids, even going so far as to steal pieces of the Pangboche Hand, which legend held was a Yeti hand, from a Buddhist monastery in Nepal…
Genetic analyses have come a long way since researchers last took a serious look at remains claimed to belong to cryptids like yeti and bigfoot. Now, Oxford University researcher Bryan Sykes thinks it's time to revisit the issue using some of the most advanced analytical techniques available.
In a manner of speaking, yes, Bigfoot did exist — although, perhaps not in the way many modern day cryptid enthusiasts surmise. In a piece written for Smithsonian's Hominid Hunting, Erin Wayman serves up the facts on Gigantopithecus — the car-sized quadruped that went extinct long before humans ever speculated about…
In 1974, Lap Kadoma — the wife of a Nepalese sherpa — had a close encounter with a Yeti. The legendary cryptid, Kadoma would later recount, had managed to sneak up on her from behind, before heaving her into a river. When Kadoma regained consciousness, she found the bodies of several dead yaks strewn nearby.

When we think of cryptozoology, we usually think of Bigfoot, the Yeti, and the Loch Ness Monster, creatures that are - let's face it - probably legendary. But some cryptids are real: just ask the platypus, okapi, and giant squid.
Not every cinematic Bigfoot's as dashing as Andre the Giant in a fur suit. No, some celluloid yetis and sasquatches are downright mediocre. Here are 10 of the cheapest, most inept, or grossest lost hominids ever to grace Hollywood.
Brace yourself! Tonight man's best friend takes on man's favorite apocalyptic monster, zombies!
As winter melts into to spring, you can celebrate the last snowfall with this crazy trailer for upcoming Syfy flick Snow Beast - the touching tale of a young woman and a Yeti.
Russians are concerned that a growing battle between bears and the "human like" Yeti of the forests will cause trouble this winter, when the defeated bears come into villages looking for food.
Drag Me To Hell director and all around horror mastermind Sam Raimi is taking on Yetis in his new film Refuge. This infusion of new monster blood is exactly what the supernatural scene needs.
