Everyone talks about Bigfoot breasts, but aren’t we ignoring another rather significance part of the filmed Bigfoot body?
In a forthcoming Fall 2007 issue of TAPS Paramagazine I examine in detail the never or little discussed theory that the female “Patterson Bigfoot” shows steatopygia, which by definition is the extreme accumulation of fat on the buttocks.
In anticipation of the publication of my thoughts on that matter, here are some visuals to examine during the month leading up to the 40th anniversary of the filming of Bigfoot at Bluff Creek, California, which occurred on October 20, 1967. They are archival anthropological photographs that demonstrate examples of steatopygia in Homo sapiens – contemporarily and through archaeologically discovered art.

Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013.
