Oliver was known as baby bigfoot, the missing link and even the humanzee
“I still get inquiries about Oliver really being a Bigfoot.” — Loren Coleman
Today in 1976, a newspaper declared the mDNA results of a captured “Baby Bigfoot,” while unique, the Baby Bigfoot was merely a chimpanzee. Oliver (pictured above) was often known as Baby Bigfoot, but a more modern, and perhaps cleverer moniker, was coined in a recent documentary broadcast on the Discovery Channel. This documentary called “Humanzee,” featured an upright walking chimpanzee named Oliver. For those who have heard of Oliver before, he’s just a chimp according to test results. Chimp or “Humanzee,” Oliver was a remarkable, upright walking chimp who appeared to prefer living and behaving as a human being than a chimpanzee for the better part of his life.
In 2007 Loren Coleman posted here at Cryptomundo, “I still get inquiries about Oliver really being a Bigfoot.” (See When Oliver was Bigfoot)
Oliver’s had a real strange and sordid history. Others have noted Oliver’s peculiar smell, eye coloring, bird-like voice and various mannerisms as being very un-chimp-like. And then there is Oliver’s sense of himself. The prevailing view was that Oliver is simply a mutant chimp. Could Oliver be the result of clandestine genetic alchemy? A mutant or hybrid chimp? Missing link perhaps?
