Two of the most common questions I am asked are: “Do the hominids you have looked for use tools or fire?” and “Are they relic Neanderthals?”
I thought I would combine the two questions to make some observations for your consideration. These are based on my experience of looking for tangible evidence in Nepal, Sumatra, China, Russia, India, Mongolia and the U.S.A.

Any knowledge we have about Sumatra’s bipedal primate, the Orang-Pendek, has to be assumptive. We are still at the beginning of our understanding of it. Data gathered from the Orang-Pendek project will no doubt take Cliff some time to analyse.
In the meantime, here are ten clear observational points which I hope you enjoy. They are my opinion based on my previous research, and on some of the information on the project that has already been published.

A day or two before July 9, 2013, a man named Pak Jintan observed an orang pendek from his farm near Hulu Batang Barau. The creature was walking on two legs along the edge of his farm near the jungle around 3 o’clock in the afternoon. He described it has being approximately one meter tall (39 inches), yet having a large body. This can be interpreted as meaning very massive for its size. The creature’s fur was described as grey and long. After the creature disappeared into the forest, Pak Jintan went to where he saw the creature and found at least one footprint (it is not known how may prints were observed since only one was photographed).

A man named Pak Jur was hunting in the forest outside of his farm in the Sumatran village of Sungai Keruh when he ran across a footprint in the soft mud. Following the direction of the trackway revealed no more distinct footprints, but enough ground disturbance was present to determine that the track maker was headed to the river. The witness felt that the prints were very fresh, and that he just missed seeing the creature.

This article appears in all the international publications of the Metro. In it,I discuss the importance of analysing evidence and cryptids carefully. I do however recognise that there will always be a place for lovable eccentrics in the field.

While hunting birds in the jungle, the witness stumbled across sign of a passing orang pendek. He found a line of footprints and broken trees (probably bamboo, but possibly sugarcane) that might have been foraged upon.

According to a recent report from blogger Robert Lindsay, scientist may already have definitive proof of the creature’s existence.
