The Best Bigfootage: Bigfoot Eye Shine in Creepy Kentucky Woods

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 25th, 2014

Speaking of eyeshine…

The Finding Bigfoot team set out to investigate what could be a Bigfoot eye shine in the woods of Kentucky. Is this evidence enough to convince Keith that Bigfoots do exist?

    Ive never seen a bigfoot, not even sure I believe they exist, but Im pretty sure apes dont produce eye shine nor do humans. Why does everybody get hung up on the eye shine?

  3. DWA responds:


    No apes we know of produce eyeshine. This does not mean it can’t happen (or that these are necessarily apes); and eyeshine is a pretty regularly reported characteristic in sightings at night, many in which the animal itself is clearly seen.

    The evidence indicates it is clearly happening. Evolution and adaptive radiation being what they are, no point in saying it’s impossible until what is causing all this evidence to happen is confirmed.

  4. SirWilhelm responds:

    @phjggyb Because there was something in the video with eyeshine. If Bigfoot are a unique species, neither ape, nor human, but another kind of hominid, then eyeshine may be unique to them. It’s ok to be skeptical, but, every piece of evidence must be considered, and added to the growing body of evidence on Bigfoot, that may, eventually, add up to enough to convince even skeptics, that Bigfoot are real creatures.

  5. cryptokellie responds:

    Eye shine is caused by the presence of an ocular membrane called the Tapetum lucidum. Most primates including chimpanzees, gorillas and humans lack this item. That is why we and other diurnal primates do not produce a vibrant eye shine when light hits our eyes in the dark. Bigfoot could have a Tapetum lucidum, especially if the species is primarily nocturnal, but until one is procured we won’t know for sure. The few night videos of a purported Bigfoot that I have seen do not seem to show any definitive eye shine. I do recall that the Myakka Skunk Ape photos as having a definite eye shine. This was probably a product of the camera flash and more properly seen as “red-eye” rather than eye shine. If those photos are authentic that is… The last I read about this incident was that the photos were possibly of a costume commonly available in the orient.
