Whether wandering through the jungles of South Asia Bigfoot? While this question is still difficult to answer, but the prospects found in this region of the relic hominoid is still there. A patch of hair from India, which has recently greatly puzzled by British scientists proof.
Mystery Tribe nittaevo
We may never know whether there were in fact wild men, who were called nittaevo tribe. This is the tribe in 1887, I heard from a hunter Sinhala English traveler Hugo Neville. Hunter nittaevo learned from his friend, who was one of the last of the Vedda tribe, who lived in the south-east of Ceylon (from 1972 on, in Sri — Lanka). Besides, in turn, the wild narodtse told an elderly relative on behalf Koraleya.
Narodec nittaevo lived in a remote mountainous area of Leanama. It was a very undersized bipedal creatures without tails, their growth ranged from 90 to 120 cm on a reported all of their body covered with thick hair, on the other — a thick hair coat was just on my feet. These creatures were stocky and powerful hands with short brushes, fingers which ended in long sharp claws. Nittaevo speech did not own, but somehow communicated among themselves with the help of some chirping sounds.
These dwarf creatures lived in small groups in caves or on the platforms, a sort of "nests", constructed of twigs and covered with a canopy of leaves. Nittaevo ate mostly meat. They were catching squirrels, crocodiles, snakes, lizards, and birds. Immediately sharp claws tore the victim's belly and regaled her innards. The people of the tribe Vedda despised these creatures for their way of life, as well as nittaevo regularly steal from people meat, posted for drying, soon peaceful coexistence came to an end.
We were only nittaevo sharp claws, and people spears, bows and arrows. Dwarfs were exterminated. Only due to his skill and cunning while they still managed to survive and even attacked at night by sleeping people, ripping them bellies with their claws. However, this did not last long, at the end of the eighteenth century Vedda nittaevo drove past the cave entrance was filled with branches and set on fire. None of the dwarfs did not survive.
You would think that Neville could tell some tale, but this information were confirmed at the beginning of the twentieth century. In the area of Leanamy visited Frederick Lewis and also heard about these unusual creatures, and he was told that the last battle with nittaevo occurred five generations ago. In general, information on nittaevo coincided with that obtained at the time Neville.
Indian Mande barung
Despite the overcrowding of many countries in the region, many of them have remained fairly remote places, where there is still sometimes encounter mysterious hairy humanoid creatures. Bigfoot recently met in India. It is striking that one of the witnesses, a simple forester, is the real enthusiast seeking the relic hominoid.
Indian forester Dipu Marak passionately believes in the existence of Mande barunga (Forest Rights) — Indian species of Bigfoot. In 2003, he met for three days of Bigfoot, covered in black and gray hair and an increase of about 3 meters, in the jungle on the Garo Hills (Meghalaya state) in the north-east of India. He collected samples of his coat and handed them over to reporters Bi-bi-si. Marak believes that it is herbivorous creature weighing about 300 kg, consuming foods in fruits, roots, some species of plants.
Not only Marak watched the creature for many years, various people tell of encounters with mysterious hominoids in the western, southern and eastern slopes of the Garo hills. One of the witnesses, collecting firewood in the forest, even saw a family of Mande barungov: two adults and two cubs. According to him, the adults were huge and being overweight, their bodies covered with thick fur black and brown. A local resident Nebilson Sangmu not only saw the creature while hunting, but also came across his rookery, which, according to an eyewitness, pitched somewhat reminiscent of the branches of the primitive hut. "After overcoming the initial shock — said Sangmu — my brother and I saw this big hairy creature for three days."
In the summer of 2008, British scientists have not yet come to firm conclusions regarding the samples obtained from Maraca. However, an expert on apes Ian Redmond said that samples of "stunningly similar" (they have the same pattern) on the yeti hair collected Everest conqueror Sir Edmund Hillary.
Preliminary analysis has allowed us to exclude the most common hair accessory animal Garo hills. "We now know for sure that these hairs do not belong to the Asiatic black bear, they do not belong to a wild boar, and not like the wool of different types of monkeys — admitted Ian Redmond. — This hair is still a mystery. I can also confirm that, if the hair is really belong to the yeti, then they, like humans, hair whipped! "
Hair analysis was conducted at the University of Oxford Brookes recognized primatologist Anna Nekaris and expert on microscopes John Wells. Image of the alleged Bigfoot hair increased by 200 times and compared with a database provided by the Museum of Natural History and the Department of Primatology, Oxford Brookes University.
Redmond and Nekaris not exclude the possibility that the hair belongs to an unknown primate. "Just two years ago in northern India opened a new kind of macaques — said Redmond. — It is possible that in the jungle there are "pockets", which can live up to now not open primates. "
Medicine from … Gigantopithecus teeth
Scientists say that if meghalaysky Bigfoot really exists, it certainly is a descendant of Gigantopithecus. It turned out that not so long ago these huge apes wandered in South Asia. According to the expert, it is "identified only 80 years ago, when Western scientists discovered the Chinese pharmacists teeth, which they regarded as dragon's teeth and used in traditional medicine. The teeth were analyzed and found out that they actually belong to a similar ape essentially alleged three meters tall, and called it Gigantopithecus. "
In the media flashed a message that, in 2007 in South-East Asia have found the skeleton of Gigantopithecus, this creature was an increase of about 3 meters and weighed 550 pounds. About Gigantopithecus curious hypothesis put forward Jen Reeves of the University of Massachusetts, he suggested that modern yeti — a descendant of Gigantopithecus and … person. According to scientists, from Gigantopithecus Yeti inherited a great height and hairiness, and from man — intelligence and certain business skills. Taken together, this helped the Yeti live up to.
DNA tests skeleton Gigantopithecus and alleged fur yeti showed that the samples belonged to close relatives. Despite this evidence, scientists still are not inclined to accept the hypothesis Reeves, in their opinion, Bigfoot might just be pulverized and degenerate Gigantopithecus.
Why is it necessarily a refining? In the 90 years of the Indian loggers saw a bipedal creature covered with a light coat 3 meters tall, which repel an impressive club elephant eating with a juicy core of palm leaves. One of the officials, who decided to test this and other reports on the reserve Songsaki actually found traces of the mysterious long … 60 centimeters. Imagine a creature that is a foot! That's certainly Gigantopithecus! And by no means is crushed …
The attack Pakistani Yeti
Bigfoot found in Pakistan. In early 2003, Raju, 20-year-old Pakistani mountain village of Haripur, told reporters about the attack on him Bigfoot. It happened right in the village, Raju left the house and heard "strange noises" coming from the bushes. Suddenly they came from "a kind of creature growth of 120 cm, covered with thick black hair, which growled at me," said the young man.
Although Bigfoot are not very tall, his body was very strong. He lashed out at Raju and scratched him. Man shouting rushed back into the house. The noise ran Raju uncle, 47-year-old Mohammad Shafi, together with her family. Such numerical superiority obviously did not like such, he growled at people and hid in the garden. Men with burning torches began to comb garden, only then the local yeti fled, uttering high and sharp cries.
As it turned out, the local old-timers in the old days, many times seen such creatures. Usually they came down from the mountains during the winter months in search of food.
For information about the mysterious creatures that resemble humans, but hairy, have been reported from Malaysia. Residents of the villages of southern Malacca often talk about their encounters with the giant ape. In 1990, in the newspaper "Soviet Youth" published an article by Mikhail Tsyganov "Orang Tua chungkak — not a bad guy!", It presents a very interesting facts about the meetings with the relic hominoids in this country. That's just one piece of the article:
"That evening, at the end of October, two workers on forest exploitation in the Malaysian state of Johor engaged in routine work, when suddenly heard a noise in the bushes. They were not new to the jungle and therefore without much fear resorted to the tried and tested means in such situations: armed with sticks, began to knock on the trunks of trees to get rid of the animal hide there. The noise in the bushes continued. Ah Hong and his partner Athan returned to work, but then the bushes parted and there was a large, apelike creature with angry red eyes … "
It is easy to assume that the workers did not examine him, and rushed to skedaddle his legs, setting Olympic records in the women … When they saw the chief lumbering Lim Jong-woo, he immediately believed in their story. These frightened people Wu saw for the first time in my life. And it is difficult to assume that workers who were experienced hunters and knew the jungle and its inhabitants at their fingertips, were considered as being similar to any of the known animals.
Was equipped special search party that found the on-site meeting with the monster strange traces of length 32 cm and a width of 19 cm department staff spent the night in the jungle, at night they heard an unusual sound, one of them shone the flashlight into the bushes and said there is "something big . " In the morning, the place they found a "huge footprints, similar to human feet."
This event, of course, interested local journalists. They managed to find people who are repeatedly seen traces of this mysterious creature. 63-year-old from the village of Cibo Sarip Sung-Mok said the following: "I have seen traces of this substance. The jungle was my playground, because I was born and raised in these parts. And I can say with certainty that they do not leave any bears or monkeys. "
Local residents have found a few names of the mysterious creatures — "Hunt dzharang gigs", "mawari" and "orang tua chungkak." It supposedly almost immortal, has a supernatural power can instantly disappear and reappear.
One of the staff of the Department of Animal Johor, commenting on the whole story, said: "According to reports, this is either unknown species of orangutan, or" mawari "- semi-legendary ape-like creature. He is a vegetarian and lives in trees. Judging by the fact that his notice only in October and November, it is the time of its annual migration route passes through areas inhabited by humans. "
Three fishermen in November 2005, scientists reported that they had seen a whole family of wild forest people. Their footprints have reached half a meter long! Arriving from zoologists carefully inspected the tracks, and on the broken branches have estimated the growth of creatures unknown to science, he could reach … three meters.
Although local residents believe that the unknown creature was actually a forest spirit Hunt Gigi yarangas of ancient legends, journalists all over the world have trumpeted on the Malaysian Bigfoot.
Hot on the heels authorities organized an expedition that combed National Park End-Rompin, but found no sign of habitation in this place like creatures. However, members of the expedition was able to record a lot of eyewitness testimony from neighboring villages who allegedly saw the creature.
In 2006, the state government of Johor expected influx of foreign hunters Bigfoot and even procured 500 permits examination of the jungle to search for it, but none of them have been filled. Not increased due to the reports of the local yeti and the number of tourists.
Why does the world community "snezhnochelovekovedov" did not pay attention to the message of the Malaysian Bigfoot? I think it's pretty simple to explain. First, each of the researchers have been popular among the search area, usually in their own country, why fly from the U.S. to Malaysia, if so might as well look for the American Bigfoot. Second, reports of relict hominoids from Malaysia are rare and are not supported by the positive comments of reputable scientists. Third, these messages can generally occur in a vacuum, and their main goal was to attract more tourists to the country.
It remains to wait for the new posts of this country. Ironically, the evidence of the existence of Bigfoot may well be found there, where no one expects …
Forest people of Laos and Vietnam
Reports of relic hominoids from other South Asian countries is even more stingy. Maya Bykov in his unpublished book, wrote that "countries such as Vietnam and Laos, always deeply stored information about the relic hominoids." Yet sometimes the information about these creatures come out to the surface. "In Laos thakthe, as it is called here these humanoids, occasionally found in the jungles of the south of the plateau Bolva. Berchett Australian journalist wrote: "My guide told me that one day in 1947 saw the mountains Nguyen group of humanoid creatures. One such creature male caught. His body was covered with thick black hair, he published the chirping sounds, not resembling human speech, eating only raw meat, river crabs and palm leaves, very afraid of people. They decided to let go, but he died unexpectedly. "
Ethnographer K. Fonekeo wrote that in the south of Laos in Saravan region, "local residents say that in the jungle you can come across the forest people thakthe. I do not see in these reports is nothing improbable, because in some parts of the country there are many tribes living in complete isolation from the outside world, in primitive society. As for thakthe, they are as far as I know, can not speak and resonate with each other inarticulate sounds. Their body is covered with hair. The growth of small: roughly a ten — twelve children. They love to feast on river crabs. People carefully avoid. Rove very small groups, and in general the number of them, apparently, is very small. "
"The same thing is happening in Vietnam — said Bykov. — Here's a message the director of the Institute of History Chan Hui Leu, which is cited in the press: "In the forest and mountainous areas Tai Nguyen, according to local residents, there is a human-like creature, called annaktan or Zohan. In 1944, in the mountain district of Thai Nguyen in the community Edoron County Madorat annaktanya a young man killed when he went down to the creek for crabs and seaweed. Mortally wounded animal trying to hide in the nearest cave. When his body was found, it appears that this is being a female of small stature. "
However, perhaps in Vietnam and have a larger variety of relict hominoid. In 2002, the media flashed a message that one of the most remote provinces lost a few hunters. Their bodies have not been found. Disappearances locals associated with the appearance of a huge creature in the jungle, like a monkey. Vietnamese scientists have quickly reacted to this post and tried to find the monster, but no trace was found.
According to the newspaper "Anomalous News"
Marine reptile resembles the famous monster of Loch Ness with his long thin neck and tail, four large flippers and razor-sharp, teeth.
Many of the bones perfectly preserved. Some almost completely destroyed. Scientists believe that the skeleton of a marine animal gutted. In the Jurassic period on the site of the modern English Channel was a shallow tropical sea, there is something just lived plesiosaurs — and those who use them bite his.
Very soon discovered the remains of a prehistoric monster will be put on public display. Rather, they first take a worthy place in the museum of Lyme Regis — as a tribute to the city, next to which the skeleton was found.
As for the Loch Ness Monster, is thoroughly "ransacked" the proposed location of its habitat by means of an ultra-modern equipment, the researchers came to the conclusion that at the moment no Nessie and similar monsters in the lake there. Despite the fact that even the remains of reptiles in the waters of Loch Ness are found, experts suggested: plesiosaurs died out due to the effects of human activity — or rather, because of the waste that is regularly thrown into a pond located on its banks and industrial enterprises.
In 2001, the most well-known expert on the Loch Ness Monster — Robert Raines from the Academy of Applied Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology — announced about the total disappearance (extinction) of the object of research. The most interesting is that people read the news written on the basis of his report, as an obituary dedicated to a particular substance. After all, most people perceive as Nessie is the only one of its kind animal who does not have any on Earth "relative."
Information on dwells in a densely populated area of Europe mysterious "dinosaur" appeared in the beginning of the last century. In April 1933, the certificate of appointment with him published by John McKay, and soon the animal became known around the world as Nessie. In the future, a photograph of the monster. The most famous of them in 1934, did a doctor from Harley Street Clinic Robert Wilson.
In the late '90s, Robert Raines noted that the number of messages from witnesses who observed Nessie decreased dramatically. Besides, he said, "sonar fishing boat less often showed the presence of an object at the bottom. All testified against what these creatures are still here."
Most of all the news upset predastaviteley Scottish authorities, who have long used the stories that in Loch Ness monster lives, in their own interests — to ensure the influx of tourists. Now officials are worried that it will negatively affect the tourism business.
