According to the VAST research ive done, LOL not really I just heard of these things today, they were caught in the crossfire quite often. The cryptomundo link posted above links to a couple of really neat stories some of which , especially the comments below the article, adress your post.

Well then let's take it to the next level - where are the photos?  I've seen photos of GIs in Vietnam with all sorts of dead animals - tigers, etc. - and given the penchant for trophy collecting, you'd think there would be some evidence somewhere.

About 6yrs ago I was hanging out with my friend in his backyard which was linded with woods, well he started talking about how hed been hearing so really weired noises and so we decided to go looking around, well right before we went into the woods we heard a branch fall from the tree so I pulled up the binicolurs i had been using, with my very own two eyes, I saw a creature about 6-7feet tall, brown hair covering its body, and LONG, lanky arms retreating into some brush. From then on, we always made sure there was a knife around when we went into the woods.
It was something i wish i could relive

How far away would estimate you were from it? You say you were using biniocolurs.

I recently read a short article about bigfoot type creatures in Vietnam which American troops referred to as "Rock Apes". I was wondering if any of our members (Veterans especially) have any first or even second hand stories regarding these creatures.


Thanks in advance.


bigtroutak, I spent two years in Vietnam. In 1966 we killed a tribe or whatever they call a bunch of them. There were six of them. As I recall, they were about four feet tall and red forearms and darker maybe dark grey body with a lighter V down their chest. It was dark so we didn't get a real good look at them. We kinda thought they looked like they were wearing a tuxedo.

And you killed them because....?

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

Same reason we all did, they moved and crossed our gun sights. Besides, they were probably colaborators.

Not strictly on topic, but Rock Ape is the nickname given to members of the Royal Air Force Regiment. The legend has it, they bear a strong resemblance to the Barbary Macaques that live in Gibraltar, (according to other Servicemen, anyway!) In reality, it refers to the Hamadryas Baboons that inhabit the former West Aden Protectorate. Ok, I'll shut up now, sorry.

If I saw a 7 foot tall beast walking around that most likely had several times my own strength I doubt having a knife with me would ease my worries about running into it again

Thanks for your reply! Some of the other stories I've read the (at the time) GI's would shoot because they seemed to be the same size and roughly color as the VC.
