An artist conception of the Nguoi Rung, the Vietnamese name for the Rock Ape.

this is about the rock ape in vietnam–i was in nam in august of 1969 in the Marines–we were on a squad patrol about 2 clicks from the DMZ in the dong ha mountain area–one day one of my buddies wanted me to see something–there up in a tree about 30 feet high was what i would call a monkey but he said it was a rock ape– about 25 yds away at the top of this tree–it was black and about 3 foot tall maybe more– couldn’t really tell–well we just watched it and it just watched us–no one shot it and after awhile we lost interest and went away–thats my rock ape story–
