The yeti is one of the world’s most notorious cryptids, one searched for in earnest and with great enthusiasm. The huge, hairy monster is said to roam the Himalayas and some people out there are convinced the “abominable snowman” is real. Does this snow monster really exist? Is it a bear? An unidentified humanoid species? Complete fiction? You’ll find out in this episode of Monstrum.
Dr. Zarka examines the yeti’s origins, from Tibetan folklore and religion to the Westernized abominable snowman version. She explains how Buddhist beliefs, a series of intrepid 20th-century explorers, and a creatively translated word make the yeti the creature we recognize today—and how it led to some pretty incredible scientific discoveries. #yeti #abominablesnowman #MonstrumPBS #bigfoot

They Prooved the monks skull was fake also. But I do believe in the bigfoot yedi are real
I disagree, that Yeti, is just some form of bear.Was a video out, some years ago, which was showing a lone figure, seemingly walking upright, and either all black or brown in colour.Walking through the snow covered, valley floor of a mountain range. And then shows the figure, make its way up the mountain before, it went out of sight.It was taken by some mountaineers, who were far across, on the opposite side, from where the figure was initially sighted.Which is well strange, for any human person, to be out in the middle, of nowhere on their own.The guy, shooting the video, even asks his group is it, the Yeti.He also said, it was climbing up the mountain, quite quickly for anyone who was solo.Was it a Yeti, maybe but it definitely was not a bear.
I hope humans never find them.
My Tibetan grandma tells me alot of stories about yetis
The white-furred Abominable Snowman in the 1964 RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER TV special was preceded by a white-furred Abomnible Snowman in the 1956 horror film MAN BEAST.
