One of my Facebook friends who publishes these photos when he finds them sent me this photo the other day and it purports to show a "baby Bigfoot" up in the branches of a tree. (This is the same individual who has sent in similar photos of "Wood Apes" that have been publicised on earlier blog entries. In this case whit is shown does look distinctly like an ape standing up in the shrubbery (enlargement in insert). It is my understanding that he does not own the photo since he has a Google copyright on the photo.
Here is a comparison of the "Wood Ape" to a pair of young orangutans walking bipedally. the stance and the limb proportions are similar although the "Wood Ape" (and the "Yeti") seem to be more regular bipeds than the usual orangutans. Even at that, the NAPES and Wood apes (and Skunk Apes of Florida) are known to go down on all fours and use knuckle-walking like the known anthropoid apes.
Above are the tracks of the South Tibetan "Yeti" (the "Little Yeti" or Lesser Migo, also known as the "Big Monkey" or Olo-Banda) and "Yeren" or Xing-Xing in China, which appears to be the same as the Hibagon 9etc) of Japan. The Little Yeti is identified as the same as the Orang Pendek by Sanderson. Below is a comparable track cast from Pennsylvania (in the man's right hand, at left, the one in the man's left hand is a "Frogfoot")
