Malaysian Bigfoot: Footprint Photos & Drawing

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 17th, 2006

The media items from Malaysia of the ongoing Bigfoot investigations, of course, are sounding less and less like the traditional Pacific Northwest Bigfoot. No surprise there.

More elaborate photographs of the track finds have been published, and illustrations of the folk art representing the creatures have been printed, as well.

Malaysia Bigfoot Footprints

The Asian Paranormal Investigation findings run 49 pages long, and, in essence, deconstructs the media and wonders if there’s a “Bigfoot” at all behind the sightings. The API report concludes the encounters are with Malay orangutans. Of course, cryptozoologically speaking, this would still be a worthy discovery, as orangutans have not been on the mainland for thousands of years.

Serjarang Gigi

The serjarang gigi, shown here, is another name that the API reports is used for the Malaysian Bigfoot.

The New Straits Times of February 18, 2006 notes:

While the State Government is preparing its scientific expedition in April to track down the creature, a group from Singapore has conducted a Bigfoot experiment in Batam. Members of the Singapore Paranormal Investigators group had planned a search in the jungles of Johor earlier this month, but their request to the Johor National Park Corporation for permission was turned down.

Meanwhile, our Cryptomundo exclusives (see Harold Stephens Interview, Part I; Harold Stephens Interview, Part II; all Malaysian Bigfoot Cryptomundo postings) made news in Malaysia. The New Straits Times wrote:

International Bigfoot websites such as the Bigfoot Research Organisation and Cryptomundo are running online discussions and advisories on the Johor Bigfoot. Cryptomundo recently ran an interview with Bangkok- based travel correspondent and author Harold Stephens.

This was followed by nine paragraphs paraphrased from Cryptomundo about Stephens’ 1970s expedition discoveries about Orang Dalam.

Malasian Mystery

While the story has died down in the West (after all, what could compete against the Cheney-shoots-friend-not-quail story), in Malaysia, at least, the “Bigfoot” interest remains high.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. 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. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Could be a crocodile foot print? That’s what it looks like to me.

  2. flickerbulbcom responds:

    it’s not hominid, whatever it is.

  3. cradossk responds:

    thats a damned big croc then

  4. cradossk responds:

    but i do agree, it does not look like a primate

  5. Aravat responds:

    Consider that crocs can get nearly 23 feet long and weigh around 2200 pounds, The print would match a big one.

  6. cradossk responds:

    still a big croc. 7m crocs are quite rare, and even so, its footprint wouldn’t be that big….

    The other issue with that theory is the seeming lack of a river or lake (from what I can gather from that picture anyway) as well as rather dense foliage. Crocs aren’t the most graceful of animals when it comes to land, but throw in some dense undergrowth, and you have some very unfriendly terrain for a crocodile.

    Another point is, if it was a croc, where are the drag marks for its tail? Or the footprints for the other side of its body for that matter? The footprints look more like they were made by a bi-pedal animal of some sort (Bigfoot on tiptoes? 😛

  7. shadowwalker responds:

    It is interesting to note that while studying the pictures the pauses inbetween the strides of these footprints seem to show that they were deliberatly made(notice how there seems to be a stride then a jump to the next stride)also notice how the prints are to close together? a bigfoot taking a DWI balance test?Whoever made these prints tried to fake dinosaur prints and unfortunatly never visited real dinosaur prints as in Glenrose Texas.
