I want to hear what you think. The question is, is Yeti (aka Bigfoot) really Neanderthal Man or a hybrid between the two?
Here’s some things Yeti and the Neanderthals have in common:
–they build shelters by bending over saplings in a dome shape and then cover them with loose vegetation.
–they both fashion spears that are nothing more than sharped thick sticks although Neanderthals later began attaching stone points to SOME of their spears. These spears are what’s called “thrusting spears” as opposed to “throwing spears” which are lighter.
–both species are very strong physically
–both species are/were very elusive (our Cro Mag ancestors seldom seen Neanderthals as they were lurking in the brush and our ancestors likely only caught a glimpse of them if at all, per Ian Tatersall’s theory.
–SOME Neanderthals buried their dead (at least some of them) and it’s been postulated that Yeti does the same. (ie: this is the reason why we find no bodies of Yeti).
–Yeti’s seem to be attracted to human females and many human females have been chased by Yeti’s and all of these females for some reason thought the Yeti was chasing them in order to have sex with them! So this begs the question….did ancient Yeti ancestors chase down and have sex with female Neanderthals who bore them offspring (the “bigfoots” we know today?).
–we are unsure if Neanderthals had speech because their voice box was lower in the throat than ours. Likewise, we are unsure if Yeti has speech but we do know it makes some rather high pitched sounds that COULD BE similar to those high pitch sounds made by Neanderthals.
–Yeti seems to be nomadic. Neanderthals were rather nomadic, following their primary food source, animal herds. Yeti appears to do the same!
–Neanderthals were short and stocky. Yeti is BIG and stocky just as one might expect to see in a Hybrid.
–Both Yeti and Neanderthals have/had large skulls with heavy browridges and very muscular bodies and “no neck”!
Of course, there are other similarities but these are just a few. Additionally, Dr Ketchum in her DNA Bigfoot analysis suggested Yeti was part “human” and part something else. Neanderthals were human! What might the “something else” be? An archaic hominin species as yet unrealized in the human or ape fossil record which was the ancient ancestor of Yeti? NOTICE I said UNREALIZED? That’s because I think we likely have some Yeti fossil remains but we haven’t realized them for what they are and instead have classed them as prehistoric apes or even as prehistoric humans!
So what do YOU think? Could Yeti be a Yeti-Neanderthal hybrid today??? Let me know in the comment section below………………….
