Two Australians claim they have footage of a yowie with glowing eyes.
Personally I am not very impressed with it. The head and eyes look like a mask to me. Comments, please.

Two ‘Yowie searchers’ claim to have filmed a strange Bigfoot-like creature
Mysterious beast with glowing eyes dubbed ‘The Morning Visitor’
They say they lured ‘him’ onto camera using a bunch of apples
Video sparks mixed opinions from online Yowie hunting community
Two friends who claim to have captured vision of an Australian Bigfoot say they ‘convinced’ the elusive creature to appear on film by offering him a feast of apples.
The grainy early-morning video, shot in South Queensland on March 29, has sent an online community of Bigfoot hunters into a spin after the friends who filmed it claimed the clip is evidence of the mysterious Yowie – a mythical creature rumoured to roam the Aussie bush.
Jason Heal and Jason Dunn, self-described ‘Yowie searchers’, posted the vision to their YouTube account on April 5 and dubbed the strange creature with glowing eyes ‘The Morning Visitor’.
‘We’d been throwing him a few extra apples since he was willing to appear on camera,’ Jason Heal told MailOnline.
‘I’m somebody who believes in appreciation in life and if he’s showing himself, we appreciate the fact.
‘We even left a few apples without the camera and said “you can have the apples but we don’t get the prize.”‘
He said the Yowie first appeared the Thursday afternoon before their early morning video by waving its ‘black hairy arm’ in front of the lens ‘to see if it’s going to set the camera off or not’.
“The possibility of the video showing a big unidentified ape remains open.’
