Bigfoot (Orangutan) Fingerprints

Uploaded by SUSANFARNS on Feb 10, 2010

Mitchell Waite
One of my cameras got beat up and took pictures of the hands doing the beating. They were not human hands, but more like an orangutan. I fingerprinted the camera and got one good print. The dermal ridges went straight across the print. No loops, no swirls, no waves which means not human. In the video you will see microscope photos across the print. The dermal ridges are as straight as can be. This leads me to believe the photos were not optical illusions, but he real thing.

A handprint shown in the mud at the end is csertainly like an orangutan's hand. Red hairs were said to be afdhering to the camera

This is a comparison of an orangutan hand print with the el Reno (Oklahoma) Henhouse raider's handprint illustrated by Loren Coleman as one of the basic evidences for a North American Ape (NAPE). When I heard of Mitchell's video I remembered this immediately and made up the paste-up. Below is a comparison for reference including a cast hand of a male orangutan and a scientific drawing made of another.

Tracks and track casts of the type include the basic Himalayan Yeti (Far Left) and the Orang Pendek (Right at top), The Chinese Yeren as an extension of the Yeti's range (track shown at lower Left, toes evidently clencheded together rather than being spread out as in the other tracks) and the North American Skunk Apes and Swam Apes (Cast from Pennsylvania shown at Lower Right)
Going by the tracks it is possible to reconstruct the foot as being a groundliving ancestor to the Orangutans, with a foot adapted to walking fl;at on the sole rather than adapted to climbing as in the known modern orangutans. I have unofficially christened this ancestor Protopongo in recognition of its special status and we could very well have fossils of it already but mistakenly referred to as being "Fossil Pongo" (Pongo being the genus of modern orangutans and the mistaken assumption being that they are the same species as modern orangutans) Protopongo is on the left and Pongo on the right: I might well have made the big toe too developed since it is reduced in all of the known tracks. The toe coming out in that location and at that angle is well known in fossil apes and in several genera is thought to be an adaptation to walking bipedally.

Just to show it again, this is the chart I made up when I discovered that the "Smaller Yeti" really was the same as the apefooted version of the Orang Pendek and both of them basically orangutans adapted to living on the groundlow is an amended family tree which I just made up to show te relationships of the known apes together with the Cryptid apes (If your tasrtes run to leaving Homo Sapiens off the chart you may do so without affecting the rest of the chart: s chart by rearranging the Jay Maternes chart also appended below it. I much prefer my verson, naturally)

When I mentioned the orangutan connection in one of the Facebook groups where Mitchell had posted, I mentioned that the more manlike Eastern Bigfoot had a more Neanderthaloid structure: here is a comparison of a Bigfoot hand in mud from Texas to  of a Neanderthal and at Left is the outline of a "Grassman" footprint form Ohio, a very good Neanderthal type track. Other tracks of the same type are narrower, possibly representing females and juveniles.

And both the Apelike type of track and the Neanderthal type are different to the Sasquatch, shown in the form of a couple of casts above and a possible reconstruction of how the foot is structured below. Basically the foot has toes like a gorilla or chimpanzee but aligned as a human being BUT at the same time the toes can spread out much more widely than a human's foot, and you can have cks where the toes are clenched in together or spread widely apart in the same trackway. This arrangement of the toes is beyong anything possible for regular human beings and suggests that the biological identity of the Sasquatch is very different from either the more manlike or the more apelike types. This goes along with the observation that creatures that leave these tracks are very larger and that they have the much smaller, characteristically pointed heads as adults

Best Wishes, Dale D.
