Attenborough Reveals Yeti Ambition

If anyone can never be accused of having flights of fantasy it’s Sir David Attenborough.

He is one of my favourite scientists of all time.

I love his nature programs. He’s eighty something, but the Yeti remains on the list of creatures he wants to find.

What a guy!

David, I’m available mate! And I’m British, if that counts for anything.

I hope he gives me a call.

Sir David Attenborough has travelled the world bringing some of nature’s most amazing animals to our screen, but there is still one creature he would like to find – the Abominable Snowman.

The veteran naturalist and broadcaster, who is presenting a new series called David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities on Watch, said there were “one or two” mythical creatures he would like to find.

He said: “I mean I wouldn’t mind finding the Abominable Snowman for a start.

“There is still a mystery about the Abominable Snowman, there are teeth that were found back in the 1920s, huge molar teeth about six times the size of ours, immense things, they were found in a Chinese druggists store and undoubtedly are the teeth of a giant ape that must have lived relatively recently itself and that could have been the Abominable S nowman.”

The legendary creature , which is also known as The Yeti, is often described as a giant ape and sightings have been reported in the Himalayan region of Nepal and Tibet.

Sir David said: “I don’t say I necessarily believe in it, I’m saying that there is evidence and of course one of the very difficult things ever to do is prove a negative, to prove that it doesn’t exist.”

The broadcaster, who said he was also “absolutely fascinated” by fleas, will examine the lives of creatures including leopards and ravens in the new series.
