As Animal Plant prepares for Monster Week, Dr. Mark Evans is taking viewers on an investigative journey about the mysterious Himalayan biped known as the Yeti in “Yeti or Not.”
Evans said viewers can expect “many surprises” from the Animal Planet special.
“I had preconceived ideas on how it might go and what I was expecting to find, and I can genuinely say I ended up in a place where I didn’t expect to be at the end of it,” he said. “Certainly my views on the Yeti mystery have changed quite considerably as a result of making this film.”
In the special, Evans travels to Nepal in search of remains that are rumored to be from Yetis. On his travels, he examines the DNA from these and various samples in an attempt to solve the myth with science.
“Yeti or Not” premieres May 29 on Animal Planet.
