Bigfoot Facts #1: People have spotted Bigfoot creatures for over four hundred years, describing the creature as hairy men; creatures of the forest. Sightings of Bigfoot-type cryptids have taken place all over the world, with tribal cultures (such as Native Americans and Bigfoot) having lore of such a man-beast.

Bigfoot Facts #2: Bigfoot footprints have been found and reported for over seventy years.

Bigfoot Facts #3: As long as people have been spotting Bigfoot animals, just as many or more have been faking evidence of the same. From producing Bigfoot costumes, fake tracks, to manufacturing Bigfoot evidence, hoaxsters have duped friends and family into believing they had an experience with Bigfoot. Today, Bigfoot sightings still occur, whether real or not, it is up to you to decide.

Bigfoot Facts #4: No one has yet produced a "smoking gun" that proves the existence of Bigfoot. There have been many Bigfoot videos, Bigfoot stories, and Bigfoot sounds, hair, and foot tracks claimed to be proof of the legendary animal's existence. Yet, to date, there has been no live Bigfoot body, or carcass found that would put the Bigfoot debate to rest for good.

Bigfoot Facts #5: Descriptions of Bigfoot have varied in height, weight, and color. Most Bigfoot descriptions claim Bigfoot to be between seven and eight feet tall. Some Bigfoot creatures have been described as tall as fourteen feet, and as short as five feet. Color descriptions of Bigfoot fur have ranged from black, white, brown and even red. Many Bigfoot stories describe the beast as being one of foul odor, weighing between 300-800 lbs.

Bigfoot Facts #6: The origin of Bigfoot has been bantered about by researchers for years, as there are various theories as to where a giant ape-man could have come from. Some believe Bigfoot is closely related to humans, while others believe Bigfoot originated from a long-extinct, giant ape. Yet, others propose that Bigfoot is some sort of highly-evolved creature, or even an extraterrestrial.

Bigfoot Facts #7: Bigfoot diet has also varied, with some believing Bigfoot eats only vegetation. Others claim Bigfoot makes deer kills, working together for the kill. Many believe that the sheer size of Bigfoot would make it impossible for such an animal to survive solely on vegetation.

Bigfoot facts #8: It is believed that Bigfoot animals migrate, from region to region, possibly for mating purposes, habitat, or available food.
