    Come on…woman or man with long hair running.

  2. Ulysses 18 responds:

    It’s interesting to say the least but is it believable ? Why is it no one follows up on these ” creatures ” to tries to get closer for a better photo or video ? i understand a nervousness factor following a large animal but it’s a once in a lifetime event. It sort of minimizes the whole thing really .

  3. Goodfoot responds:

    cryptokellie: Amazing analysis! I’m STILL not good enough to see that long hair, though.

  4. dconstrukt responds:

    LOL…. when he zooms in it just looks like a person walking rather quickly… is that supposed to be “bigfoot”?

    hate to say this… but if this is the kind of proof running around, you guys are royally screwed.

    or maybe there’s no such thing as a “skunk ape”.

    All I know is its hot as HELL in fla. Today it was probably mid 80’s, I was sweating like a mofo from walking from my parked car to starbucks.

    you’re telling me a big 500–800+ lb “ape” or “ape man” are walking around the swamps, in this damn heat?


    even with air conditioning its hotter than hell.

    just seems unlikely.

  5. cryptokellie responds:

    Look closely near the end of the enhancement from timing 1:20 onward. Something very light colored or perhaps reflective is definitely on the figure as it moves along. It could be hair or it could be clothing but that is most likely just a someone running.

  6. dconstrukt responds:

    these things would need to be in shelter or cover during the summer months… man its like 80+ degrees here in fla right now.

    if you stood out in this heat… with all that fur… you’d pass out or possibly die from heat stroke/exhaustion within a few hours.

    how could a bigfoot survive here?

  7. cryptokellie responds:

    The American black bear resides in Florida. It’s size and heavy coat doesn’t seem to hinder it as the bear population in the state has been on the increase. I guess a somewhat light coated group of Bigfoot have wouldn’t too difficulty surviving there along with wolves, coyotes, foxes and mountain lions which are also fur coated. Long hair doesn’t necessarily mean heavy body fur.
    But this video is of a person running.

  8. dconstrukt responds:

    here’s the list of animals:

    notice: black bear – rare or uncommon; localized populations statewide except Keys

    rare of uncommon.

    this isn’t ideal habitat for them. it’s too damn hot.

    if you were here, trust me bro, you’d know what i’m talking about.

    you park your car… walk into starbucks from the parking lot and you are DRENCHED in sweat. Imagine a 500-800 lb hairy-man-like thing… walking in this heat…

    I can’t.

    THAT would need to be explained.

    Because being here, knowing how hot it is in these summer months… there’s no way I see that animal hanging out in the heat.

  9. cryptokellie responds:

    I would imagine that Bigfoot is rare or uncommon anywhere in it’s “range” but remember, I agree with you and I don’t think this is video of a Bigfoot either.

  10. Goodfoot responds:

    It’s called ADAPTATION. Check it out on Google sometime.

    Gigantopithecus blackii lived alongside modern man 100,000 years ago, in Vietnam and Szechwan – areas I’d suggest compare in climate to Florida.

    And they were bigger than Bigfoot or Skunk Apes are said to be. So what’s the problem?

  11. dconstrukt responds:

    Goodfoot – LOL the first problem is you’re talking about “adaptation” about something that you can’t prove is even real!

    chicken before the egg dude… you can google it. 🙂

    you said adaptation for bigfoot… okay genius… prove it!

    you can’t.

    if you can, like I said, i’ll be the first to man up… apologize… and jump on that bandwagon.

    but you can’t and deep down, as much as you want to believe, you know you can’t.

    Replying with anything else but proving it, to me, means you’re full of it.

    sure “adaptation” sounds great… but its just your own opinion.

    opinions in science mean nothing… we are interested in DATA.

    DATA we can test.

    your opinion on what you THINK, what I think… what anyone thinks is irrelevant.

    The data says right now, there is nothing here.

    can you produce the data?


    till then all you’re saying is your opinions which to me and any scientist is irrelevant.

    About the heat… do you live down here? no.

    unless a bigfoot has some adaptation for an air conditioning system, HIGHLY, HIGHLY unlikely. Humans evolved too since that time and we can’t even handle this heat for more than a few hours without passing out or even dying.

    yet some make-believe animal you can’t prove is real, somehow magically “adapted” to 90 degree heat? LOL cmon… get off the magic mushrooms bro.

    what you’re saying makes zero sense.

    more than likely its escaped chimps or whatnot from hurricane andrew… and the parks we have down here… nothing more. 🙂

  12. cryptokellie responds:

    The only real problem is that the above video shows a person running. Not a Bigfoot or Skunk Ape or Gigantowikipedia. Lets prove that one actually resides there and then worry about how…

  13. Raiderpithicusblaci responds:

    @Goodfoot: My sentiments exactly. Another great post. Thank you. Happy Fathers Day!

  14. Raiderpithicusblaci responds:

    By the way, I’m certain almost all of us can appreciate the eloquence of Goodfoot’s thoughtful, intelligent post, and can also appreciate the relevance of everyone’s opinion on these creatures; I have had an encounter and I know some of you have experienced something that beggars description. But to imply that the burden of proof is on me or any one of us to prove this animal’s existence (or non-existence, for that matter), is a cop-out, pure and simple. I’ve interviewed hundreds of people, including migrant workers I knew very well, as I happened to be working those same crops as a young boy living in (more like banished to) Northern California in the seventy’s, who were terrified of the “Gorilla” that would come to their encampment at night; I saw first hand the footprints this beast left behind, as well as dents in the hood of an old chevy pick up big enough to accommodate a watermelon.I was scared, but I had to know more; little did i know I would have my own encounter soon enough. But I digress; to criticize our peers to the point of calling their opinions irrelevant or the result of “magic mushrooms” without going and searching for the answers ourselves is to undermine not only our quest for the truth, but our very selves, as well.

  15. dconstrukt responds:

    cryptokellie – exactly. lets prove it first… this video shows what we all think is a person running.

  16. cryptokellie responds:

    Just for fun and thought…
    The answer to – which came first, the chicken or the egg – is the egg. Simply because a chicken cannot come from anywhere else but an egg. What laid that egg is another question altogether.

  17. dconstrukt responds:

    lol. 🙂
