The Yeti is a Himalayan mountain biped that has been known of by Sherpas for hundreds of years. Others in the area have seen it as well, and it is one of the most famous and commonly-seen cryptids. It is found in three different varieties: One at eight feet tall, one at six, and one at four. All three types are solitary creatures, and they are covered in white or brown fur. They have somewhat pointed scalps. Yeti are known to carry off and eat yaks and goats, and there are even some reports of them harming humans. However, these shy creatures are not known to be overly vicious. They, like other crypto-hominids, are known for their massive feet and the footprints they leave in the snows of Nepal and Tibet. Currently, alleged Yeti hairs are being DNA analyzed, which will hopefully shed some light on the Yeti mystery. Is it a descendant of gigantopithecus? A local legend? Since it is a cryptid, no one yet knows.
